    This overview highlights the key themes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to help organisations understand the new legal framework in the EU.

      The first EU Data Protection Directive was written in 1995 but a new, stronger regulation is being developed to take into account vast technology changes of the last 20 years. The plan is to finalise the regulation this year and implement it in 2017.

      As with any regulation, the current draft could change. However, only minor changes were made between the last two drafts, despite lobbying attempts, and the latest version is possibly as close to final as we’ll see. Below are 10 of the most important elements European organisations should take away from the current draft, to help them prepare for 2017.

      1. This is a regulation, not a directive

      The terms regulation and directive are often used interchangeably, but they are very different. A directive is implemented and enforced by individual countries but regulations become law without change when they are passed. The current EU data protection directive resembles a patchwork of slightly different laws across Europe but the new regulation will be implemented in all 28 countries.

      2. Data processors will be held responsible for data protection

      Under the directive, any data “by which an individual can be identified” was the sole responsibility of the data controller, ie the owner of this data. Under the new regulations, however, any company or individual that processes this data will also be held responsible for its protection, including third parties such as cloud providers. Put simply, anyone who touches or has access to your data, wherever they are based, is responsible in the case of a data breach. The ramifications of this are pretty broad. Third parties will need to be extra vigilant when it comes to securing the data of others, and data owners will want to thoroughly vet their partners
