General Data Protection Regulation

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is due to come into force in the UK on 25 May 2018. The aim of the GDPR, which replaces the current Data Protection Directive, is to establish a modern and harmonised data protection framework across the EU.

On 13 September 2017, the Government introduced the Data Protection Bill in Parliament. The Bill provides for implementation of the GDPR and repeal of the Data Protection Act 1998, which currently regulates the handling of personal data.

We round up our resources that will help employers prepare for the introduction of the new data protection regime.
