The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a EU regulation which came into force on 25th May 2018. Building on the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive (DPD), which it will replace, the GDPR aims to improve protection of EU citizens’ personal data. This will be done by increasing the rights of data subjects, raising the obligations of businesses who collate and process personal data, and putting into place tougher penalties for anyone found to be breaking these new laws.
The UK Government published the draft Data Protection Bill 2017 in September 2017, and this brings into UK law all of GDPR and alters some key parts on things like the age of minors included. There are no material changes or exclusions from the full EU version and so no time should be lost in starting the journey to GDPR compliance.
