Europe is updating its data protection legislation.
Europe is working towards a common market – I nearly said at breakneck speed but Brussels works at a pace that reflects the complexity of bringing 28 member countries instep and that could hardly be described with any use of the word speed! That said, there is a singular focus on harmonisation across Europe as we move towards the single market and the updating of data protection legislation is seen as a key step.
I will be writing about the GDPR in a series of articles over the coming months.
In the meantime here is a quick overview of the GDPR Timeline.
The GDPR will come into effect across the EU on May 25th 2018. Now is the time to start planning for it.
