General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force across the European Union on 25th May 2018. Based on privacy by design and taking a risk-based approach, the GDPR has been designed to meet the requirements of the digital age. The new Regulation aims to standardise data protection laws and processing across the EU, affording individuals stronger and more consistent rights to access and control their personal information.
