The introductory section of the thesis discusses on the European General Data Protection Regulation, abbreviated GDPR, background information and historical facts. The second section covers basic concepts of personal data and GDPR enforcement. The third section gives detailed analysis on data subject rights as well as best practices for GDPR compliance to avoid penalties. The fourth section concentrates on the technical aspects of the right to be forgotten, solely concentrating on the technical aspects of permanent erasure/deletion of personal or corporate data in compliance with the customer’s desire.
