General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - Are you compliant?

From the 25th May 2018 new regulations came into force which govern how data must be handled. Compliance is compulsory and organisations found to be in breach of the regulations may find themselves liable for fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million (whichever is greater).

The changes, which will apply throughout the EU, have been driven by the ever increasing amount of information which is being gathered as a result of technological advances, coupled with an increased awareness by individuals of their right to privacy. Compliance with the new regulations is a challenge which is not to be underestimated. Organisations will need to carry out a detailed review. Fundamental changes may be required of a legal, technological and operational nature.
