On May 25 2018, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is due to come into force, which will bring in a strict set of new rules concerning privacy and data security, and impose penalties on organisations which violate them.

UK organisations that process the personal data of EU residents have only a short time to ensure that they are compliant. The regulations have been introduced to adapt to the pace of a modern digital landscape, and will be more extensive in scope and application than the current Data Protection Act.

This White Paper, written by Croner Legal Advisor Liam Holland, aims to explain what GDPR is, how it will impact organisations, and the consequences of any breach.

Our comments and research within this report are intended as a guide for employers.
