GDPR: General Data Protection Regulation

On 25 May 2018 most processing of personal data by organisations will have to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The new GDPR legislation intends to make data protection laws consistent across EU nations and to implement more contemporary legislation, with many existing laws insufficient to protect against data usage on social media and the volumes of data now available to organisations

Your organisation should already be compliant with the existing Data Protection Act 1998 legislation and the GDPR builds on this. ‘This is evolution not revolution’.

Below are some resources to give you some guidance:
