Jump-start identity innovation with GDPR and Auth0

A job that requires a flexible tool can’t be done with a template - achieve GDPR compliance and innovate identity for the apps you build with Auth0.

On May 25, 2018, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) will be enforced by the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union, and the European Commission as a way to protect and unify the personal data of European Union (EU) citizens.

The existing policy, originally established in 1995, has evolved to GDPR to keep pace with the demands of today’s data-driven world. While its intent remains the same - to keep citizens’ data secure - there are notable changes that will take effect.

Important GDPR updates

  • Regulation Expansion

    All companies processing personal data of residents in the EU, regardless of company location, must follow GDPR guidelines.

  • User Rights

    Customers have the authority to request access to data, have their data be erased, or transmitted to another data controller.

  • Notification

    There will be mandatory security breach reporting that must be done within 72 hours of it being exposed.

  • Fines

    Non-compliance can result in fines of up to €20 million or 4% of the global annual revenue of a business (whichever is greater).

  • Consent

    EU companies must have demonstrable consent from users via an easily accessible form using clear and plain language.
