Information Governance


New legislation

The Data Protection Act (DPA) 2018 was introduced on the 25 May 2018 and currently regulates how personal data is stored and handled to make sure it is not misused.

The DPA includes the UK’s implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which introduces significant changes to the rights of data subjects and the requirements for processing personal data. All organisations will have to comply with these regulations.

The following pages have been updated to provide advice and guidance to reflect the newly implemented DPA.
