GDPR Explained: An Essential Overview of the Facts and Myths

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the new legal framework for the protection of personal data across the European Union (EU). It replaces the 1995 Data Protection Directive (DPD), addresses the widely inconsistent data laws currently existing throughout EU member states and includes new responsibilities for data controllers and processers. With GDPR round the corner and Brexit looming, it’s vital your business understands the ins and outs of the EU’s new data protection regulation and adheres to its provisions or risk fines of up to 4% of your global annual turnover and reputational damage.
