The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) in effect May 25, 2018 aims to give more rights to EU residents with regards to how their personal information is being collected, stored and used. EU residents now have the right to request the organisations to stop using, return or delete their personal data.
How GDPR affects Email
With email being the primary source for communication for businesses, it is an essential first step to find ways to make sure that the information contained within these emails is protected to comply with the new GDPR laws.
By their very nature emails contain a high level of personal information. This personal information can include anything that is related to an identifiable individual including email addresses, names, phone numbers, and IP addresses.
