Data Protection & GDPR

Data protection in the UK is governed by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and UK's Data Protection Act 2018. The Act implements the GDPR into UK and sets out rules and regulations around how personal data can be processed as well as setting out the rights of Data Subjects, the individuals whose data is being processed.

Our introduction to data protection sets out the basics you need to know about the main data protection principles and approaches. We also have a guide to the GDPR including details of the main changes as well as guides and tools.
