The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) brought about the biggest change in data protection law in the EU and the UK in more than two decades. The GDPR regime is just one aspect of a complex regulatory landscape that includes laws governing matters such as ePrivacy, access to information held by public authorities, laws relating to cybersecurity and computer misuse, and human rights.
The Butterworths Data Protection Law Handbook brings together in one manageable volume an invaluable single source collection of the most important pieces of EU and UK legislation and international materials in this field of law – which, to an ever-increasing degree, affects all individuals and businesses throughout the UK, the EU and beyond.

Presented in easily accessible parts covering Data Protection, ePrivacy, Freedom of information and Environmental Information, Cybersecurity and Human Rights, the second edition of the Butterworths Data Protection Law Handbook will also include new sections covering key legislation in a no deal Brexit, as well as relevant draft EU-UK withdrawal arrangements.
