What is GDPR and why the change?
On the 25th May 2018, the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will supersede national laws such as the UK Data Protection Act, unifying data protection and easing the flow of personal data across all 28 EU member states.
So, why the change? In short, the original European Data Protection Directive framework (Directive 95/46/EC) had been in existence since October 1995. Advances in IT, such as the internet, social media sites, online banking, cloud based services/solutions etc., have highlighted some short comings in this old directive. As a result, on the 27 April 2016, the new EU data protection regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European parliament has effectively replaced the old directive.
Over and above the initial awareness required and the definition of an approach to tackle this issue, KYOCERA UK has GDPR ready solutions to assist you in tackling GDPR compliance.
It is important to mention that even though the UK is in the midst of Brexit, it is highly likely that some, or even all, of the GDPR’s provisions will be transposed into UK law. Although the specifics are obviously not yet known, it is likely that this may occur via an amendment to the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) or by repeal and enactment of new UK legislation.

Printers and Multi-Function Devices (MFDs) are intelligent networked assets, that like a PC contain a screen, a keyboard, a hard drive (which can potentially store sensitive information), and an Operating System (OS).
