In 1998 the Data Protection Act (DPA) was introduced by UK Parliament as the main piece of legislation to govern the processing of data on identifiable living people. However, as time has moves on, the technology landscape has changed so much since the act was enforced, that this law is now significantly out of date and is not able to protect the individual as originally intended.

However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) under EU law (adopted on 27th April 2016 and applies from 25th May 2018), will supersede our Act and the Data Protection Directive from 1995, and be significantly more stringent. The main focus will be to protect the personal data of all individuals residing within the EU, irrespective of where the company holding the data is based, and includes rules around holding, processing, profiling, maintaining and deleting that data to name a few.

Time remaining until all companies have to be GDPR ready!
