GDPR will change data protection – here’s what you need to know

GDPR will change data protection – here’s what you need to know

General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, will overhaul how businesses process and handle data. need-to-know GDPR guide explains what the changes mean for you.

In less than a year, Europe’s data protection rules will undergo their biggest changes in two decades. Since they were created in the 90s, the amount of digital information we create, capture, and store has vastly increased. Simply put, the old regime was no longer fit for purpose.

The solution is the mutually agreed European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will come into force on May 25 2018. It will change how businesses and public sector organisations can handle the information of customers.
