GDPR and AnyDesk


What is GDPR?

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a comprehensive data privacy regulation in the European Union, designed to protect personal data of EU citizens and give them more control over their personal information. It replaces the previously fragmented data protection laws in EU Member States and applies to organizations operating within the EU and handling personal data.

  • Implementation of appropriate technical and organizational measures for data protection.
