What is GDPR?

Europe’s data protection rules are undergoing sweeping changes. To keep up with the huge amount of digital data being created, rules across the continent have been re-written and are due to be enforced. From May 25, 2018, the new mutually agreed European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will update personal data rules.

GDPR will bring outdated personal data laws across the EU up to speed with an increasingly digital era. The previous data protection laws were put in place during the 1990s and haven’t been able to keep pace with the levels of technological change.
