The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new single set of rules that aims to strengthen and unify data protection. Building on the Data Protection Act 1998, it will provide new rights for data subjects around transparency, notification, access, erasure and portability. Any company that stores or processes personal information about EU citizens within EU states must comply with the GDPR, even if they do not have a business presence within the EU. Companies who do not comply face fines of up to €20 million or 4% of their annual turnover.
