SENIOR NAVAL OFFICER TEMPORARY MEMORANDUM XX/18
GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION 2018
Sponsor: SEC

INTRODUCTION

  1.  The General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (GDPR18) will apply with effect from
    25 May 18 and supersedes the current UK Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA98). It is a
    significant and wide-reaching piece of legislation which brings a 21 st Century approach to
    data protection and how it is handled.
  2. GDPR18 expands on the rights of individuals to control how their personal data is
    collected and processed, placing a range of new obligations on organisations to be more
    accountable for data protection.
  3. It is important to note that although GDPR18 empowers individuals, there is also an
    onus of personal responsibility. This is detailed within Annex A.
