GDPR — DATA PROTECTION

Following the approval of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by the EU Parliament on 14 April 2016 the GDPR now applies to all member states, including the UK and shall be enforced from 25 May 2018. The GDPR is broad and far-reaching and replaces the Data Protection Directives 95/46/EC. The regulation applies to organisations operating within the EU and to organisations outside the EU that offer their services to individuals in the EU. Businesses are now required to ensure to that the collection and processing of data comply with the GDPR. Organisations that breach the GDPR could be fined the greater of either 4% of their annual global turnover or €20 million. Therefore, we work with organisations to help them understand the key policies of the GDPR and ensure that they are in full compliance.
