Are you aware of GDPR?

Posted 1st March 2017 News

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the European Council and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union (EU).

GDPR is due to apply to UK law in May 2018, introducing tough fines on companies that suffer data breaches and imposing restrictions on what organisations can do with people’s data.

Currently, the UK relies on the Data Protection Act 1998, which was enacted following the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive, but this will be superseded by the new legislation. It introduces tougher fines for non-compliance and breaches, and gives people more say over what companies can do with their data. It also makes data protection rules more or less identical throughout the EU.

ITPRO have put together articles on everything you need to know about GDPR as well as how to get ready for the changes.
