This GDPR regulation was passed by the European Union in 2016 to strengthen the protection of its citizens' personal data. The collection and processing in our time is quite common but often the necessary measures are not followed and these data can be stolen.

Nowadays some individuals and companies use deifferent ways to transfer both their own data and their customers. This has the effect of protecting them from being essential and necessary. This regulation, in addition to this simple protection and security of personal data, also maps the obligations of organizations with regard to data collected,stored and processed. This regulation is not only about organizations or companies based in the EU but also outside it, as there is a possibility of working with a company or organization established within the EU.

In order for the company to adapt to the new framework, preparation time has been given and 25 May is set for implementation.

Below we will see some of the obligations that GDPRs have under the collection, storage and processing of EU citizens' data.

 Compliance with the requirements of the regulation.
 Protection of citizens' individual rights.
 Appointment of Data Protection Officers.

When a company or organization collects data, it should be able to answer some questions such as: when an action was taken, from whom it came, from which and any other questions arise. In order for answers to be given, the life cyrcle of the data should be understood and applied. See how it is depicted in the picture below.

Analytically the importance of the circle below.

Data security starts from their creation, so there should be a responsible person in the company for their protection.
When created, the data should be safely stored and unauthorized accessed.
In this situation, the data is exposed to malicious attacks, unauthorized access, or unintenional omissions.
The movement of data between people and organizations is a common phenomenon and requires a great deal of attention in handling them.
At this point the data is not useful but exist.
Data on destruction should take appropriate protection and security measures until it is destroyed.

Very important with the new European regulation is to see what happens and the data that appears in the whois of the somain names. For ICANN's end-to-end terminations, discussions are held on how to manage the data displayed. As far as the Greek endings are concerned, the data of the owners who have registered domain names is already hidden. What we are waiting for is what procedures will be done and what will apply to the endings that belong to the other European countries.
