Reason Why the General Data Protection Regulation Was Created

The main reason why the General data protection regulation was created is to protect data that belong to the European Union citizens. Due to emerging technologies in the rapidly changing world, there are some things that the (GDPR) aims to add to the data protection directive that was created in the 90s.One key issue that was not properly addressed, was how data should move between geographical grids.

One big reason why the (GDPR) was created is that there is an increase in the number of internet hackers. Hackers normally make fake websites where you put your data. Most people use the same usernames and passwords for all their sign up on websites. Through tracking they are able to get your emails and get more sensitive data about you. Through emails, they can also be in a position to get to know your financial transactions especially virtual ones. A service like PayPal basically uses your email to authenticate transactions.

Privacy should not be added as an add-on but should be incorporated from when the system is developed. This means that companies with already developed systems need to crash them and redesign them from scratch with the privacy components included.
