Data Protection law is an ever expanding area which is trying to keep up with the internet era of the modern day. The law aims to protect individuals from having their data breached and being subjected to potential harm. As such the law has set standards expected of those entities which hold and process data. The General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) 2016 is the most recent example of the law trying to catch up and as such a lot of modern obligations and rights have been created and are in force as of 25 May 2018.
Where an entity processes data and is not compliant with data protection law they face large fines, up to €20,000,000.00 or 4% of global turnover under the GDPR, as well as losing the publics trust and as a result it is vital that companies are compliant.
