Understanding the General Data Protection Regulations

blog-publish-date 08 August 2018

On May 25 2018, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force, bringing in a strict set of new rules concerning privacy and data security, and imposing penalties on organisations which violate them.

The regulations were introduced to adapt to the pace of a modern digital landscape, and are more extensive in scope and application than the previous Data Protection Act. This White Paper, written by Croner Legal Advisor Liam Holland, aims to explain what GDPR is, how it impacts organisations, and the consequences of any breach.
