GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION

INTRODUCTION
With effect from 25 May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation comes into force. This Regulation replaces the 1995 Data Protection Directive which set out the minimum standards for processing data in the European Union.
The new regulation enables individuals with more power to demand companies reveal or delete the personal data they hold and regulators will be able to work in concert across the European Union from 25th May 2018, rather than having to launch separate actions in each jurisdiction with the ability to enforce significant fines.
