General Data Protection Regulation

Make sure your business is GDPR compliant

What is GDPR?

The main focus of GDPR will be to protect the personal data of all individuals residing within the EU, irrespective of where the company holding the data is based, and includes rules around holding, processing, profiling, maintaining and deleting that data to name a few.

In 1998 the Data Protection Act (DPA) was introduced by UK Parliament as the main piece of legislation to govern the processing of data on identifiable living people. Technology has evolved so much since the act was enforced, that this law is now significantly out of date and does not protect the individual as originally intended.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) under EU law, which was adopted on 27th April 2016 came into play on the 25th May 2018.
