Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation) (Text with EEA relevance)

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. The GDPR aims primarily to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.[1] When the GDPR takes effect, it will replace the data protection directive (officially Directive 95/46/EC)[2] of 1995. The regulation was adopted on 27 April 2016. It becomes enforceable from 25 May 2018 after a two-year transition period and, unlike a directive, it does not require national governments to pass any enabling legislation, and is thus directly binding and applicable.

This latest revision of furthering the efforts to secure data within the EU, is a welcome relief to many, which over the years have expressed grave concerns that the previous legislation was somewhat outdated, and not in tune with the modern challenges of adequately securing data.

This latest piece of amended legislation will further enforce the notion, that all data in whatever form must be kept secure, and that includes the IPTV industry, and all-related software applications.

Nymex Ltd, has endeavoured to take the initiative, by releasing a new IPTV Media Player & control panel (middleware) solution which incorporates encrypted peer-to-peer security protocols, and ensuring that all data it holds is totally secure.
