The European Commissions’ regulation for data protection rules (GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation, AVG in Dutch) in the EU shall apply from 25 May 2018. The objective of this new set of rules is to give control back to citizens over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environments for business in the EU. SAP systems contain business critical and sensitive data including personal data which needs to be protected.
