Odlaw: Retroactive GDPR Compliance

Odlaw is a new tool for retroactive compliance with privacy laws like the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR enumerates the explicit rights of individuals regarding the use of their personal data, and regulators can impose strict penalties for organizations that fail to comply. While others have advocated for a completely new class of systems to address these regulations, Odlaw takes a different approach by achieving GDPR compliance while allowing an organization to keep its existing data management infrastructure intact.
