The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became EU law in May 2017 which subsequently came into effect in the UK on 25 May 2018. While the scope of GDPR is similar to the Data Protection Act 1998, the requirements and penalties are considerably greater.
We’ve provided some essential information to help guide you through addressing the principles and conditions of collecting, processing and retaining personal data, with reference to GDPR requirements.
The ICO has published a useful guide explaining the provisions of the GDPR to help organisations comply with its requirements. It is for those who have day-to-day responsibility for data protection.
