GDPR is coming! In 1995 the data protection directive was introduced with the intention of protecting the data of people living within the European Union. However it has since become outdated and now businesses will have to adapt to be in accordance with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Because of how quickly the web has advanced since then, the old regulations simply do not cover the amount of different types of data that are stored and shared online.

Here we can hopefully help you get to grips with what’s new and what it’s all about.
