EU 2016/679: Personal Data Protection — Overview and IAM Impact

This document summarizes the requirements for data protection in REGULATION (EU) 2016/679 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 27 April 2016.

The impact of these rules on a typical corporate identity and access management system are then explored.

The updated rules in EU 2016/679 take effect on 25 May 2018, replacing 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation). As with 95/46/EC, the new rules are intended to not only protect the privacy of EU citizens but also to facilitate trade, through application of uniform rules across EU member states.
