GDPR is legislation written to protect EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in a world that is vastly different to when the Data Protection Act was established.

The legislation:

Specifies what is “personal data”
Regulates what can be done with “personal data”
Define the roles and responsibilities of “controllers” and “processors”
Answer the question of what is considered “consent”
