The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the European Union's new legislation to protect the personal data of EU citizens, organisations must be compliant by 25th May 2018. It comes in place of the 1995 Data Protection Directive (DPD) and, prior to Brexit, would have led to the UK implementing a new act in place of the existing Data Protection Act 1998. The GDPR incudes new and updated responsibilities for data controllers and processors.
Businesses trading within the EU need to demonstrate compliance with the GDPR when handling personal data.
The GDPR is a binding legislative act that applies in its entirety throughout the EU and creates a framework of consistency for the protection of personal data.
