GDPR – What is it?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new law which will give individuals greater control over their data by adding additional and more defined rights for individuals whose personal data is collected and handled by organisations. This new law will come into effect from 25th May 2018 and will replace current data protection laws in the European Union.

The GDPR introduces obligations to organisations and businesses in how they collect, use and protect personal data on individuals but these organisations and businesses must also be able to show proof of compliance and accountability.
