What is GDPR and how does it affect you?

From 25th May 2018, there are new regulations regarding the storing, processing and sharing of personal information.The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new data protection law, which will replace the existing EU laws. It aims to strengthen the protection of “personal data” paying particular attention to the way that data is now used and shared through internet and cloud technologies.

The EU wants to give people more control over how their data is used, whilst making a simpler, clearer legal framework for organisations who manage, control and process people’s data.
