EU General Data Protection Regulation
Data protection in the UK and across the EU is set to change on Friday 25 May 2018 when the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect, superseding the current Data Protection Act 1998. From this date, the GDPR will govern data privacy and impose new obligations on businesses and public bodies as to how personal data is generated, processed, transferred and stored. With significantly higher penalties and tougher requirements, it is essential that organisations are compliant with the GDPR.
For further advice on data protection and the GDPR please contact Matthew Hattersley, head of our data protection team, based in leeds.
