The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became part of the UK’s Data Protection Act in 2018 and, post-Brexit, is now known as the UK GDPR. All organisations that handle personal data must ensure that they are aware of the rules brought about by the GDPR and must examine the processes they have in place to ensure they continue to comply with the law.
