General Data Protection Regulation






The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a legal framework which sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information.

For further information, refer to this article in Wikipedia :

And the full text of the regulation is available at EUR-Lex (the official website of European Union law and other public documents of the European Union) :


Key points in GDPR

The Regulation is very long, detailed, and complex (88 pages of small type), so here are a few of the main points in simple non-legal language :

1. Scope : The new GDPR applies to any and all processing of the personal data of EU residents.

2. Consent : Should an organisation want to use an individual’s data, consent must be asked for and given in clear, explicit terms.

3. The “Right To Be Forgotten” : Enables a person to have their personal data deleted.

4. Breach Notification : In the event of a data breach, notifications to the effected individuals are mandatory within 72 hours.

5. Privacy : Data controllers must hold and process only the vital information needed to carry out their duties and access to such data should be limited to necessary personnel only.

6. The Right To Information : Individuals have the right to know which information relating to them is being stored.

7. Data Portability : Individuals have the right to receive their personal data from a data controller and transfer it to another provider should they so choose.
