Technological progress and globalisation have profoundly changed the way our data is collected, accessed and used. In addition, the EU Member States have implemented the 1995 Data Protection Directive differently, resulting in divergences in enforcement; hence, the need to have significant legislative reforms: (A) The General Data Protection Regulation will enable people to better control their personal data. At the same time modernised and unified rules will allow businesses to make the most of the opportunities of the Digital Single Market; and (B) The Data Protection Directive for the police and criminal justice sector will ensure that the data of victims, witnesses, and suspects of crimes, are duly protected in the context of a criminal investigation or a law enforcement action. While the Regulation became effective as from 25 May 2018, EU Member States should have transposed the Directive by 6 May 2018. All parties are to have geared up and implemented the necessary changes to their systems, in an effort to ensure compliance and steer away from the hefty penalties that are introduced.
