GDPR resources

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), aka Regulation 2016/679/EU, is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the European Council and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union (EU).  It applies to organizations:

  • That are based in the EU
  • Doing business or providing services to people in the EU (whether for money or not)
  • Engaging in systematic profiling of people in the EU

The GDPR has extra-territorial effect, so even companies not in the EU but who do business with people or firms in the EU are effected.

It comes in to force on the 25th May 2018

Are you "GDPR Ready"?

Regulation 2016/679/EU (aka "The General Data Protection Regulation", aka "GDPR") was published in the Official Journal of the EU on the 4th May 2016 and will be in effect from the 25th May 2018.

The GDPR is a significant evolution in EU Data Privacy law and practice and presents significant opportunties and challenges for organisations processing data about residents of the European Union, regardless of where those organisations are based.

The entering into effect of the GDPR is only one of a number of significant changes to EU data privacy laws and governance which organisations may need to consider.
