What is the GDPR?
Following on from our September blog, here is a recap about the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The GDPR comes into force on 25th May 2018. It is not a new regulation but instead a required evolution to the existing Data Protection Act. It gives additional protection for individuals and their data, providing greater transparency and control over where their data is saved and how it’s used. The UK’s data regulation regulator, the Information Commissioners Office (ICO), gives guidance on what the new law means for organisations and how they can become compliant.
