GDPR has been a major issue for developed nation and has been enacted from May 25 2018, apparently in developing countries and other lower economies the GDPR issues has been pretty silent about its impact. No matter in any condition the GDPR encompassed all stakeholder and region creating a standard form of rights where there is gaps in between nations and at national practice.

Format:

The GDPR also teaches some new vocabulary. For instance, the regulation promotes techniques such as anonymization (removing personally identifiable information where it is not needed), and pseudonymization (replacing personally identifiable material with artificial identifiers). The regulation also promotes the use of encryption to protect personal data.

There has been very limited research and study done where directly or indirectly the law effects everyone from around the globe.
With the limitation of capacity building and awareness the overall concept of GDPR and its impact has been fairly explored especially in developing Countries.
