The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new EU law that comes into effect on 25 May 2018. It will apply across all EU member states, including Ireland. The GDPR protects the privacy rights of individuals and places further requirements on organisations, whether they are in the public, private or voluntary sector, to safeguard individuals’ personal data that they collect, use and store. The GDPR reforms EU rules on data protection. Many existing regulatory concepts on data protection will be retained, but there will be significant changes under the GDPR that require consideration and advance preparation by all businesses.
