GDPR Essentials


The General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”) came into effect on 25 May 2018. The GDPR is directly effective in each EU member state, with the aim that the same rules are applied uniformly within the EU. This marks a shift in the approach to data protection at a European level, which until 25 May 2018 relied on national implementing legislation in each EU member state.

Avoid heavy fines and reputation loss, resulting from non-compliance; learn from our expert on how the GDPR will affect your organisation.
