The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the result of four years of work by the EU, delivering data protection legislation with new ways that data is now used. GDPR will come into force on the 25th May 2018, replacing the existing data protection framework under the EU Data Protection Directive.

Here, in the third in a series of videos featuring industry experts looking at Risk & Continuity for businesses today, EMIT founder and Managing Director Eamon Moore gives his thoughts on GDPR, how it will affect businesses and customers, and the importance of data protection.

Moore has been involved in the IT industry since 1995 and has worked with companies such as CSK Software and ESAT/BT. He holds a degree in Computers Applications from Dublin City University and has recently completed a Diploma in Cloud Strategy in conjunction with the Irish Management Institute, University College Cork and Microsoft.

He is also a member of a number of organisations, including the Small Firms Association, the Institute of Directors and the Dublin Chamber of Commerce and has recently been appointed to the Institute of Directors Up & Coming Directors Forum.
