EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)< back to news

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is new legislation that provides a single, harmonised data privacy law for the European Union. The GDPR will replace the current Directive and will be directly applicable from 25 May 2018 in all Member States. The GDPR will affect every organisation that processes EU residents’ personally identifiable information (PII).

There is some ongoing discussion on this subject more recently in today's Irish Independent of 13th February here.
