General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union law that regulates the data protection and privacy of citizens in the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA). It also addresses personal data transfers outside the EU and EEA. Data privacy is the handling of data within legal and standard requirements that involves consent and regulatory expectations. GDPR has key principles to assist organizations in addressing data privacy concerns. Data privacy and protection can be maintained with transparency, set limits, data minimization, limits on storage, accuracy, security maintenance, and accountability.  GDPR Compliance is ensuring all departments handling personal data are compliant with GDPR law and addressing all principles of data protection. 

Advances in technology are transforming the way that health data is collected and used. Developments include improvements in existing technology and innovations in mobile technology such as smartphone apps and wearables. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA), ISO 27701, and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) impact how health data is regulated. These and other vital regulations protect Personal Health Information (PHI). PHI pertains to the collection, storage, and use of personal information and addresses personal information accessibility and under what conditions. 

New storage methods and sharing data have created gaps in regulatory frameworks, potentially exposing PHI to malicious exploitation.  GDPR is credited as the most stringent privacy and security law in the world. Though it was drafted and passed by the European Union (EU), it imposes international obligations to organizations, so long as they target or collect data related to people in the EU.
