After several years of debate, the new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) has been ratified by the EU and will become part of UK law later this month. The new legislation has been designed to offer enhanced protection to any EU citizen who has their data stored by companies and orga­nisa­tions anywhere in the world.

Data protection is of serious importance and is currently covered by the UK Data Protection Act. The GDPR enhances this protection in several ways, ensuring that data is kept safer than ever before and also allowing customers access to such data. After viewing data that is kept on them, customers can demand that it is deleted or altered if they so wish. As well as covering directly-identi­fi­able personal data, such as email addresses, the GDPR also legislates indirect forms of identifiable data such as cookies and IP addresses.

Data storage and retrieval systems will be vastly upgraded In order to be as robust as possible; any breaches to systems must be promptly disclosed to customers. Powerful new encryption software will ensure that data is non-identi­fi­able and an appointed data officer will carry out regular tests to all systems in order to ensure full compliance is maintained.
