What is GDPR?

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is the unifying of data protection laws for all EU Member States to ensure data privacy is synchronised throughout the EU.

Who is affected?

All businesses large and small will be significantly affected as it relates to any HR-related processing activities and the data that is held.

When does GDPR come into effect?

The regulation will be fully operational on the 25th of May 2018.

What are the penalties for not being compliant?

The Data protection regulator can impose fines that can seriously impact your business financially.
