    Insurers cash in on new European data privacy rules

Europe's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which takes effect on Friday, has been billed as the biggest shake-up of data privacy laws since the birth of the web. The law brings Europe more closely into line with the United States, where many states have for several years required firms to notify regulators about data breaches.
