In May 2018, a European privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is due to take effect. The GDPR imposes new rules on companies, government agencies, non-profits, and other organizations that offer goods and services to people in the European Union (EU), or that collect and analyze data tied to EU residents. The GDPR applies no matter where you are located.

Today, the Power BI team has released a whitepaper to provide you with some basic understanding of the GDPR and relate that to Power BI. This whitepaper will help you understand options for how to configure Power BI as one part of your overall strategy to meeting the requirements of the GDPR across your organization, which will likely include a variety of different tools, approaches, and requirements.
