GDPR took effect from 25th May 2018. Now is the time to make sure you are taking the steps to ensure your organisation is ready.
Post Brexit, the UK government have committed to bring the requirements of GDPR into law.
Among other things the GDPR strengthens and unifies data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). Organisations must demonstrate that they treat personal data with due care and respect, and know when and how to uphold individuals’ rights.
GDPR will be overseen in the UK by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). The levels of penalty possible under the GDPR are far higher than those that currently apply.
