The ABCs of GDPR: New EU regulations aim to protect individuals' privacy

The EU is set to bring in a raft of new data regulations. The General Data Protection Regulation - or GDPR - aims to give consumers more control over their personal information. Will the new rules be a tipping point for the industry? What will change for consumers, and how are firms getting ready? We put these questions to privacy and tech specialist Etienne Drouard. He used to work at France's data privacy watchdog CNIL and is now a partner at K&L Gates law firm.

Also in this special edition on data privacy protection:

With the EU set to bring in a raft of new data regulations, we look at the scandals and stand-offs that brought the tech world to loggerheads with the European Union.

And keeping your data close to your chest - or in this case, even under it! We bring you a report on why imbedded microchips could be the future of privacy.
