What is the GDPR?
The GDPR is a piece of legislation set by the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union, and the European Commission to replace the Data Protection Act (1998) and is intended to strengthen data protection. It comes into effect on May 25th, 2018 and will impact the way that business can store and process personal data.
One of the major changes that the GDPR will introduce is higher penalties for non-compliance. Therefore it is important that every organisation that operates within the EU understands the necessary steps they are required to take in order to become compliant.
We have collated a series of articles and resources that are designed to answer some common queries regarding GDPR, and how it will impact each industry in different ways.
