Are you ready for GDPR?
Whether your business is big or small, you’ll have to comply with new regulations on the secure collection, storage and usage of personal information.
If you own a small business and you haven’t already then please pencil in 25 May 2018 as the date that the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force.
The legislation has been introduced to encourage companies across the EU to think seriously about data protection. Despite the UK having voted to leave the EU, UK businesses will still have to comply if the data they handle is about EU citizens or can identify individuals in the EU.
Digital Minister, Matt Hancock, has confirmed that the UK will replace the 1988 Data Protection Act (DPA) with legislation that mirrors the GDPR post-Brexit.
