The goal of GDPR is to give control of personal data to EU residents. In order to achieve this, companies must demonstrate they meet the GDPR requirements of Accountability, Consent, Appointment of a Data Protection Officer, Pseudonymisation (encryption), Data Breach Notification, Right to Erasure, Data Portability, and Data Protection by Design and by Default. Non-compliance can result in severe penalties of up to 4% of worldwide revenue! Companies must protect personal data including names, addresses, photos, e-mails, bank details, posts on social networking sites, medical information, and IP addresses in their (production and non-production) environments.
