The GDPR initiative was adopted in April 2016 four years after EC Vice-President, Commissioner Viviane Reding, published proposals to reform European data protection rules.
By May 2018 all EU member states will be affected. So will every company in every country worldwide, that does business with them.
And, for those who might be pinning their hopes on a GDPR-free, post-Brexit environment, the news isn’t good. Irrespective of whether Britain’s exit from Europe is “soft” or “hard”, the UK Government has already declared an intention to honour the dictates of the new regulation. Post-Brexit, the overwhelming likelihood is that the UK will either be subject to the GDPR or will enact legislation that is functionally identical.
