Data Protection & GDPR
Data protection in the UK is governed (until 25th May 2018) by the Data Protection Act 1998. The Act 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.
On 25th May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect across the whole of Europe, including the UK (despite Brexit). The GDPR updates the EU data protection regime for the 21st century as well as providing a level playing field across Europe so that no matter where in Europe a Data Subject lives they can expect similar protections no matter where in Europe their data is 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.
