EU regulations have direct effect in all EU member states, meaning the GDPR replaces the current Data Protection Directive and applies to all EU member states.

In fact, GDPR is one of the biggest shakeups ever seen affecting how data relating to an individual should be handled—and it affects not just companies but any individual, corporation, public authority, agency or other body that processes the personal data of individuals based in the EU.

The rules on how data is kept and used will become much more stringent, and it’s vital that HR and People teams become more transparent, communicating to employees exactly how their data is processed.
