General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) came into force on the 25th May 2018. The GDPR replaces the Data Protection Act 1998, putting in place new controls and rules around how personal data is managed and protected. Failure to comply with GDPR can result in fines up to €20 million, reputational damage, distress to data subjects and compensation claims.
