The GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force from 25th May 2018, replacing the existing data protection framework under the EU Data Protection Directive. This regulation imposes new obligations and stricter requirements on all organisations involved in the processing of personally identifiable data, emphasising transparency, security and accountability.

Objectives

The primary objectives of the GDPR are to:

  • Institute citizens’ rights in controlling their personal data
  • Simplify the regulatory business environment by adopting a unified regulation across the EU
