eIDAS and GDPR Regulations
In 2016, we expect two major things with a huge impact on the European single digital market to happen. Firstly, a majority of the Regulation No. 910/2014 on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market comes to effect and secondly, the approval of the General Data Protection Regulation is also expected. These regulations will have considerable impact on the security industry and the obliged entities will in many cases have to adapt their internal processes as well as the used legal documents. This paper describes the most significant changes brought by these regulations from the security perspective.
