Abstract

In the present digital era, organizations worldwide are facing several opportunities and challenges in safeguarding and preserving significant data that are essential in the efficient functioning of organizational activities. Organizations have realized and understood the importance of data collection and analysis to influence target achievements and meet futuristic demands. Many small-scale enterprises and start-ups have also initiated decisions to implement technologies that enable a positive long-term impact. Due to these requirements, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) implementation has become a necessity to ensure future sustenance and functionality of existing and growing organizations. The operational activities in the organizational environment are forced to comply with the general data protection regulation policies and framework. The European Union general data protection regulation, which was imposed in May 2018 (European Union General Data Protection Regulation, 2016), has proven to be effective, both within the country's internal boundaries and globally. However, many organizations are still not familiar with the general data protection regulation compliance policies. The emergence of general data protection regulation has been a recent interest in the activities of various organizational sectors as they are attempting to understand the policies and compliance requirements on the implementation of GDPR applications. The research intends to explore the implications between the GDPR and emerging technologies and suggests various recommendations for organizations to implement and follow the GDPR guidelines that could enhance organizational activities.
