The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are coming into place on 25th May 2018. These regulations will replace the current Data Protection Act and depict the way companies can handle and extract sensitive data.
GDPR protects our data rights as individuals, both as consumers and employees. They are in place to fight the on going cyber battle between legitimate businesses and scam artists and hackers that pose an ever growing threat.
The GDPR changes are set to force companies into protecting their client data, rather than encourage it as before.
There are several alterations to be considered before the regulations come into place as the consequences of non-compliance or a data breach are also set to change significantly.
