GDPR - Data Compliance

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation, Europe's new framework for data protection laws – it replaces the previous 1995 data protection directive, upon which current UK law is based.

The Data Protection Act 1998 wasn't written with the contemporary uses of data enabled by the internet and services - such as Facebook and Google - in mind.

The legislation is designed to "harmonise" data privacy laws across Europe as well as give greater protection and rights to individuals.

It includes new rights for people to access the information companies hold about them, obligations for better data management for businesses, and a new regime of fines.
