What is the GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679); is an EU regulation that replaces the Data Protection Directive of 1995 (Directive 95/46/EC). GDPR aims to harmonize data protection and data privacy laws across EU member states, giving back control to citizens over their personal data; and to simplify the regulatory environment for businesses by unifying regulations within the EU and by providing a clear legal framework for commercial organisations to operate within.
The Government intends for the GDPR to continue in UK law post-Brexit and has introduced a Data Protection Bill to replace the existing Data Protection Act (DPA).
