GDPR is an EU directive, but the Government has confirmed that it will implement the new law regardless of Brexit.
The basic objective of the GDPR is to enforce stronger data security and privacy rules among organisations when it comes to protecting personal data. The law comes into effect in the UK in May 2018.

failure to comply with the new law can lead to a fine of up to £20m or 4pc of global annual turnover, whichever is greater.
The rules are also quite clear on the fact that whoever is responsible for the breach – whether an employee, a malicious attacker, or a partner or other third party – is irrelevant; it will be the organisation that foots the bill and suffers any consequent reputational damage.
