General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The GDPR applies from 25 May 2018 and will update and overhaul European data protection law. GDPR places new and enhanced, ongoing obligations on all organisations with serious sanctions for breaches – including fines of up to 4% of global turnover or €20m, whichever is greater. The GDPR will replace the current European Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC), which dates back to 1995. While many fundamental concepts and principles will remain broadly the same, the GDPR provides for significant changes which will have wide ranging impacts on a broad range of sectors.
