Abstract

The digital revolution of the past 20 years has made the level of data information sharing unprecedented and ubiquitous. We share with friends, family, and even strangers online. Companies share our data, often legitimately, sometimes circumnavigating laws to sell our personal information for a profit. To give greater control over personal data to individuals the European Parliament Council have drawn up a new set of regulations which supersede the previous EU Data Protection Directive (1995) and the UK’s Data Protection Act (1998). The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is due to come into force on 25th May 2018, and its aim is to protect individuals from privacy and data breaches in this increasingly data-driven world. What will this mean for dental hygienists and therapists?
