Romania To Adopt GDPR
Romania will adopt the EU's General Data Protection Regulation in May 2018, meaning companies will be required to have integrated personal data storage and processing information systems.
Failure to comply with the new regulation will result in large fines. However, Secretary of State Cristian Cucu added that the new regulation is not a directive, "which means that there is no requirement to transpose it into national legislation."
He also described himself as a supporter of the idea of IT specialization and that in this regard Romania needs to find its position in the European Union.
