The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will replace current data protection laws in the European Union from 25 May 2018.
The new Regulation will give individuals greater control over their data by setting out additional and more clearly defined rights for individuals whose personal data is collected and processed by organisations. The GDPR also imposes corresponding and increased obligations on organisations that collect this data whether they are in the public, private or voluntary sector.
