GDPR is coming – What is it?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) a new EU privacy law will come into effect on the 25th May 2018.

GDPR is the EU’s way of giving individuals, prospects, customers, and employees more control over their personal data and less power to the organizations that collect and use data for monetary gain.

It will apply to any company storing or processing personal information about citizens in Europe. It provides citizens of the EU with greater control over their personal data and assurances that their information is being securely protected. Under GDPR there is no distinction between personal data about individuals in their private, public or work roles.
