General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Changes to the data protection regulations come into force on 25 May 2018
The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the result of four years of work by the EU to bring data protection legislation into line with new, previously unforeseen ways that data is now used.

Currently, the UK relies on the Data Protection Act 1998, but this will be superseded by the new legislation.  It introduces tougher fines for non-compliance and breaches, and gives people more say over what companies can do with their data.
