The Gen­eral Data Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion (GDPR) is the big­gest shake up in data pro­tec­tion that has ever oc­curred and will be re­plac­ing all the na­tional data pro­tec­tion laws all over Europe. The reg­u­la­tion was pub­lished in the Of­fi­cial Jour­nal of the Euro­pean Union on 4th May 2016 and will be ap­pli­ca­ble in its en­tirety as from the 25th May 2018.

From this date, any or­gan­i­sa­tion es­tab­lished within the Euro­pean Union that is hold­ing, stor­ing or us­ing per­sonal data will be re­quired to com­ply with the new rules. The GDPR will have a sig­nif­i­cant im­pact upon IT. Thus, data con­trollers and data pro­ces­sors will need to think ahead about it. Be­low is a de­scrip­tion of a few of the key changes which were made. How­ever, this is not an ex­haus­tive list.
