On 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (the GDPR) becomes law across all member states within the European Union.
It has been widely described as a “game-changer” as it overhauls the manner in which all businesses and organisations handle personal data. Significant penalties can be imposed for breaches so doing nothing is not an option.
GRPR is a reality for all businesses / organisations that hold data about individuals. It is not too late to start your GDPR preparations, including setting objectives, creating a project team and allocating a budget and resources. The time to act is now.
