The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the new European Union data protection law that takes effect on May 25, 2018. It sets out businesses’ responsibilities in relation to the personal data they collect and hold, it also governs the processes businesses use for managing that personal data.
Who will GDPR affect?
GDPR will affect all businesses (including sole traders) who hold or process the personal data of people in EU Member States. There are potential fines of up to 4% annual global turnover or €20m, whichever is greater, for businesses that don’t comply.
