The new laws provide tools and strengthened rights to allow people to take back control of their personal data. The legislation requires increased transparency and accountability from organisations, and stronger rules to protect against theft and loss of data with serious sanctions and fines for those that deliberately or negligently misuse data (Elizabeth Denham)
