General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
The GDPR will come into effect on 25 May 2018 and will affect every organisation that processes EU residents’ personally identifiable information.
The GDPR will supersede the Data Protection Act 1998 and ease the flow of data between all the EU member states. Anyone who processes information about EU nationals will need to prepare for compliance. Following is a helpful toolkit from Harrisons Clark Rickerby’s about how schools can comply: 10 steps for schools.
Please note that at time of writing, the GDPR is very likely to be implemented regardless of the UK’s planned exit from the EU.
