GDPR, new data protection regulation from May 2018

From 25 May 2018, a new General Data Protection Regulation comes into force and replaces the Data Protection Act of 1998. This is for all companies big and small, whether you are a one man band or a major corporation, and involves the collection and keeping of any personal data associated with any individuals of any kind.

It will be enforced by the Information Commissioner’s Office and non-compliance will mean hefty fines estimated at 20 million Euros or 4% of gross global turnover, whichever is the greater.

Here is a short overview of GDPR from our security partner Simon Heron at Greengrass Systems:
