Regulation (EU) 2016/679 is referred to as the General Data Protection Regulation – this is known as GDPR, and will replace EU country legislation. GDPR comes into force on 25th May 2018. And all companies processing EU citizen data must be compliant by that date.

DPA = 8, GDPR = 6. Despite their ‘numerical’ differences, the principles for data protection cover the same ground: with the ‘missing' 2 principles being absorbed within GDPR, and so all the requirements are still there! Additionally, GDPR enhances many principles by providing finer detail than the DPA and, importantly, a new accountability requirement. Finer details and points can be found in GDPR’s 99 Articles.
