GDPR - The General Data Protection Regulation
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the EU’s new data protection regulations, which will come into effect across the EU on 25 May 2018. GDPR is essentially about increased control and security of personal data.
The UK Government has already confirmed that Brexit won’t affect the introduction of GDPR in the UK, where it will replace the current UK Data Protection Act (DPA) (1998).
Many of the existing data protection principles of the DPA are being carried over into GDPR, but it is much wider reaching. Individuals will have much more control over their personal data – and businesses that collect, handle or analyse personal data will have new obligations to comply with. GDPR also provides national regulators with new powers to levy significant fines on any businesses that breach the regulations.
