What: The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) started to be enforced on 25th May 2018. This sits alongside the new Data Protection Act – Data Protection Act 2018 – which replaces the Data Protection Act 1998.
Why: The old data protection laws were implemented when there was no social media or cloud computing. It did not reflect how we now live and do business; we needed better ways to protect and use personal data.
Does Brexit make a difference? No, when Brexit happens the plan is to put the GDPR into UK law.
