On May 25th 2018, the new European General Data Protection Regulations or GDPR come into force.
This supersedes the UK Data Protection Act 1998 and is one of the most important pieces of legislation affecting businesses large and sma ll. The regulations also apply to charities and any other organization that holds electronic data.
The GDPR will apply in both the UK and across wider European Community, even after Brexit, and place new responsibilities not only on a c ompany or organization, but also personally on the directors.
