Applicability of GDPR on business secret data

Does GDPR law apply only to the personal data of people? Doesn't it apply on corporate confidential data? e.g, business secrets, patent information, copy right information, confidential email etc., if yes, which section of the GDPR mentions the same?

Answer:

The EU GDPR protects the rights and freedoms of individuals as regards to their personal data. The EU GDPR defines personal data as being “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person” (art 4 – “Definitions” https://advisera.com/eugdpracademy/gdpr/definitions/

So unless your patent information or copyright information don’t fall under the EU GDPR unless they contain personal data of individuals which is highly unlikely.
