Does your company store any data of citizens of the European Union? If so, you may want to take a particularly close look at how secure your data centers are, or you may find yourself in hot water if a breach occurs.

The EU Parliament has passed new General Data Security Regulations, which represent the most stringent laws around data center security. If you have data from EU citizens, you’re going to have to comply with these rules.

This means you’ll have to create a single Data Protection Authority for your company, and notify the DPA within 72 hours of a security breach, among other new regulations. Failure to comply with these rules could result in fines of up to 100 million euro.
