The government has created a new Data Protection Act (2018) which replaces the 1998 Data Protection Act. The new UK Data Protection Act was passed just before GDPR came into force, after spending several months in draft formats and passing its way through the House of Commons and House of Lords. The GDPR imposes new rules on companies, government agencies, non-profits, and other organisations that offer goods and services to people in the EU, or that collect and analyse data tied to EU residents.

The primary objective of the GDPR is to give citizens back control of their personal data. From an economic standpoint, the GDPR aims to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.

There has been a great deal of worry about GDPR, with the much-publicised heavy fines for non-compliance.

With such a big change in this area, we have pulled together resources from a variety of sources to support you in making changes.
