Data Protection | 22 February 2018
In 1995, the European Union sought to improve the protection of personal data within the EU member states through introduction of the Data Protection Directive. In May 2018, the directive will be replaced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This regulation will give individuals greater control over how their data is used, stored and erased. It will also update, strengthen, and standardise data protection laws throughout the EU and impose greater related responsibilities on data controllers and data processors.
