Since May 2018 GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) replaced the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC: which significantly changes data protection in Europe, strengthening the rights of individuals and increasing obligations on organisations.
GDPR particularly increases the obligations and responsibilities for organisations/businesses in how they collect, use and protect personal data. At the very centre of the new law is the requirement for organisations and businesses to be fully transparent about how they are using and safeguarding personal data, and to be able to demonstrate accountability for their data processing activities.

The enforcement date for GDPR is 25th May 2018. Organisations in non-compliance after this date will face heavy fines.
