GDPR Cyber security: Implications for Australian companies

The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25 May 2018 hails the most significant change to data protection law in Europe in over 20 years.

The GDPR is intended to foster clear, uniform data protection laws across the EU, building legal certainty for entities and enhancing consumer trust in online services.

While primarily applicable to EU member states, the GDPR can have broad extra territorial reach and may have implications for Australian businesses.
