Content: New rules implemented by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) mark the biggest changes in 20 years and have major implications for data centre operators and cloud service providers.  Data driven businesses of all sizes will face more bureaucracy, more legal uncertainty and more risk.

In October 2015 the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) ruled that the EU-US Safe Harbour Agreement, which allowed the free movement of data between the two regions) was invalid due to the inadequate level of protection against surveillance by the public authorities of data transferred to the US. This has huge implications for companies transferring data in and out of the US.
