What is the GDPR

The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in 2016, coming into effect from 25th May 2018, will have an enormous impact on how all organisations collect, retain, process, share and dispose of personal data.

The new laws give organisations greater responsibility for protecting personal data and give the individual (the data subject) greater control over any information that is held about them.

Breaches of the new regulations carry potentially very punitive fines.
