As of 25 May 2018, the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation 2016/679, or “GDPR”) will provide a new legal framework for privacy and data protection in the European Union. The GDPR will replace the 1995 Data Protection Directive, which is transposed into each EU member state’s national laws. While the GDPR resembles the principles of the Data Protection Directive, it has some important new key elements.
Houthoff’s Privacy & Data Protection Team has published a brochure which describes the new key elements in the GDPR, the GDPR’s data processing principles and the steps an organization should take towards compliance with the GDPR. The brochuse can be found here.
