How GDPR Will Affect Data Science

By now, any data professional worth his or her salt should know about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This EU law, set to be enforced in May 2018, has sent shockwaves (and a fair bit of fear) across many industries and professions. But, perhaps the one area set to bear the brunt of the regulation is data science.

It doesn’t take a data scientist to understand that GDPR is going to drastically change how every business stores, processes, transfers and analyses its data. The regulation is one of the strictest, and most far-reaching data laws to date. It governs everything from the storage and portability of data, through accessibility and consent of use.
