General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

This data protection regulation will allow individuals to have greater control over how their data is collected and controlled when it comes into effect in May 2018. Under this regulation, all businesses working with personal data will be obliged to appoint a Data Protection Officer or data controller. Non-compliance with GDPR regulations gives the Irish Data Protection Commissioner the power to fine an organisation up to €20 million or 4 per cent of a company’s annual turnover.
