A clear, concise introduction to the GDPR

This essential guide is the ideal resource for anyone wanting a clear primer on the principles of data protection and their obligations under the GDPR.

On 25 May 2018, the GDPR superseded domestic data protection laws in the EU, unifying data protection and simplifying personal data use.

The Regulation introduced a number of key changes for all organisations processing EU residents’ personal data. EU GDPR – A Pocket Guide provides an essential introduction to this new data protection law, explaining the Regulation and setting out the compliance obligations for EU organisations.
