Staff Pages: GDPR


  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will reshape the way organisations approach data privacy in the European Union and beyond.
  • GDPR will come into force on May 25, 2018, and is designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe and to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy.
  • It covers such topics as data breaches, citizens’ right to access data, their right to have personal data erased, and the requirement to design systems with data privacy built in from the start. Failure to adhere to GDPR could result in significant financial penalties.
