Data Protection Compliance: A Guide to GDPR and Irish Data Protection Law is a practical guide to current European data protection law, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 (GDPR), which came into force 25 May 2018. This book is designed and written to assist with GDPR compliance and to allow the reader quick access to certain GDPR related questions. The introductory section explains the broader elements relating to the GDPR, thereafter each chapter sets out the questions that require answering during the required steps towards compliance.

Reference is made throughout the book to the Irish national implementation of the GDPR and any derogation made by Irish law within the Data Protection Act 2018.
