Data Protection


The UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) works with the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018) to form the UK's data protection framework. 

It determines how people’s personal data is processed and kept safe, and the legal rights individuals have over their own data.  

The UK adopted the EU’s GDPR in 2018, but since the UK's withdrawal from the EU it has used its own version, known as the UK GDPR.

  • embed UK GDPR requirements into policies and day-to-day activities, 
  • implement technical measures to ensure GDPR compliance,
