A clear, concise primer on the EU GDPR

This essential guide – the first of its kind on the market – is the ideal resource for anyone wanting a clear primer on the principles of data protection and their new obligations under the GDPR.

The GDPR aims to unify data protection and ease the flow of personal data across the EU. It applies to every organisation in the world that handles EU residents’ personal data.

In the UK, the change from Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) compliance to GDPR compliance is a complex one. EU GDPR – A Pocket Guide provides an overview of the changes that are needed to comply with the Regulation.

Not for the first time the author in particular and his publishing arm in general have explained an IT security or related subject - what can so often be dry and forbidding - concisely and authoritatively (and the two do not easily go together).
