GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) makes the protection of personal data of citizens of the European Union homogeneous. It began to take effect on May 25, 2018.
The main regulatory reference is EU Regulation 2016/679 that, in Italy, will repeal the rules of the Code for the Protection of Personal Data (Legislative Decree No. 196/2003).
Also in Italy, the Privacy Authority provides guidelines for the interpretation of the GDPR, as well as useful resources. This authority is also responsible for supervising compliance with the regulation by organizations and individuals.
