The biggest change to Europe’s Data Protection rules in 20 years will come into force in May 2018. The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) will give people new rights to access the information companies hold on them, require firms to better manage the data they have and bring new (and potentially much higher) fines. Having been discussed for the past four years, companies will need to be ready to adhere to the rules under GDPR from 25 May 2018.

Customer Data

Under GDPR, individuals will have the right to access their personal data and supplementary information, as well as the right to be aware of and verify the lawfulness of the processing of their data. Customers will also have the ‘right to be forgotten’ and to have their data erased from a company’s records. It will become essential for a company to not only know whose data they hold, but what that data includes.
