Why is the GDPR being introduced?
The aim of the new regulation is to standardise and update how businesses handle the collection of personal data.
Although current data regulations exist, these differ by country and are difficult to track. The new regulation sets out a clear set of requirements that businesses must follow in order to comply.
The GDPR prioritises the rights of the individual, ensuring consent to the collection of data and that the data is managed and processed securely.
