GDPR in a Nutshell
The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) came into force on May 25th 2018 and with it came new data protection responsibilities for all organisations and heavy fines for non-compliance (upto €20 million or 4% or annual global turnover – whichever is higher.)

GDPR now applies to all organisations based within the EU and also to any non EU organisations that are offering goods or services with the EU. As such, it is expected that when Brexit takes effect, it will have little impact on the application of GDPR in the UK.
