As of 25 May, the EU General Data Protection Regulation, commonly referred to as GDPR, comes into effect and replaces the current Data Protection Act (DPA).

Many of the GDPR’s main concepts and principles are much the same as those in the current DPA, so if your company is complying with the current law then most of your approach to compliance will remain valid. However, there are new elements and significant enhancements to be aware of.

FIS has put together a useful document to help members and the sector focus on the key changes and to provide quick links to the information available. The article includes an outline of what GDPR covers; who enforces GDPR; who, in your company, needs to be aware of GDPR; and some key steps to take before 25 May.
