Living in an increasingly digital world has brought about undeniable changes to our lives.
One of the consequences of this is the amount of data we all share, including many of our personal details. Medical professionals, retailers, insurers and numerous other service providers all hold personal data, some of which is highly sensitive.
However, the way our data is used isn’t always clear and nor can we be sure it is being kept secure. The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) the EU is introducing next May aims to tackle this by creating new rules to keep data safe. It will also give people greater control over how their personal data is used.
