What is GDPR? will it apply to my company/me?
The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) updates and replaces the existing Data Protection Act (DPA). GDPR ensures that any organisation that controls or processes personal data (i.e. data that can be traced back to a ‘data subject’ who is a living individual) is applying data protection principles, and can demonstrate this. Personal data can be either commercial or private.
Therefore, if you hold personal information on employees (i.e. for payroll purposes), contact information for your clients, or indeed any ‘personal data’, then GDPR will apply to you.
