The data protection law reform is coming with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)


GDPR is set to impact on charities and businesses across the European Union, as it expands the rights of individuals to control how their personal information is collected and processed. The new regulation also places a range of new obligations on organisations to be more accountable for data protection.

GDPR will take effect from 25 May 2018, and you should aim to be compliant by then.

In order to help you gain an understanding of what you need to do in the run up to GDPR coming into effect, we have provided you with some useful links and resources, and a training session.
