Data Protection 2017 - the GDPR clock is ticking!
Get ready for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The Data Protection Act 1998 (“DPA”) sets out current data protection law within the UK.
The world is now a very different place compared to when the DPA was implemented nearly 20 years ago. When the DPA came into force, the internet was still in its formative years, online banking and shopping services were taking their first tentative steps and the global social media platforms we now rely on were barely dreamed of.
As the years have gone by and technology has moved forward, ever greater numbers of people are active online in both personal and professional capacities. Increasing amounts of data and personal information are shared and, at the same time, the risk of data breaches has grown. The need for an updated, modern piece of legislation governing data protection has become increasingly obvious.
