This Information Commissioners Office document highlights the key themes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to help organisations understand the new legal framework in the EU.
It explains the similarities with the existing UK Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA), and describes some of the new and different requirements. It is for those who have day-to-day responsibility for data protection.
This is a living document and ICO are working to expand it in key areas. It includes links to relevant sections of the GDPR itself, to other ICO guidance and to guidance produced by the EU’s Article 29 Working Party.
The Working Party includes representatives of the data protection authorities from each EU member state, and the ICO is the UK’s representative.
