General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect on 25 May 2018. It will impact all industries and organisations and will build on the current Data Privacy Act (DPA), strengthening an individual’s rights to know and control what happens to their personal data. 

What you need to know

Here are some links to articles from AMI, ICO. (Information Commissioner's Office) and lenders on the topic. They have issued information to help firms understand the new rules.

Here at Legal & General we have pulled together FAQ’s on our own approach to readiness.

We hope these articles will help answer some of your questions about the new legislation.

We would always recommend you consult your own counsel on how the regulation will impact you and your business specifically, but we hope the information here helps inform on the legislation.
