Encrypted Email Made Easy
Today, ProtonMail is the largest secure email service in the world, providing over 8 million users worldwide with built-in GDPR compliance.
GDPR compliance is good for business
As privacy advocates, we believe the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is great for consumers. As security advocates, we believe the GDPR is great for businesses. In recent years, the cost of cyberattacks to businesses has spiked, nearly doubling over a four-year period. Implementing secure technology is one of the easiest things an organization can do to avoid the steep costs of a data breach or a GDPR fine.
We created GDPR.eu as part of our mission to raise awareness about online security and privacy issues. On this website, you’ll find GDPR compliance resources, analysis of the law and its impact, GDPR news, and other information about data security and privacy. We will continue to update this site as we learn more about how regulators and courts will enforce and interpret the GDPR. Keep in mind that our expertise is data security; for legal GDPR compliance advice, we recommend you consult with an attorney who can apply the GDPR to your specific circumstances.
