EU GDPR

What is GDPR?

On the 25th of May 2018, the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation [ EU GDPR] will come into law. It will apply across all nations throughout the European Union, and it means that the EU’s data protection law will also extend to cover all foreign companies processing EU residents’ data. It’s going to result in a huge increase in compliance obligations for companies. In particular, the potential penalties of up to 4 per cent of an organisation’s worldwide turnover is making data protection a much more prominent issue in the minds of CEOs and boards
