GDPR and the new Data Protection Act is coming...Are you ready?


The Regulation

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in May 2016 and will apply from May 2018.

In addition the Government has announced a new Data Protection Act is forthcoming to incorporate GDPR. This new change in the law is coming regardless of Brexit.

All businesses and organisations that hold or process personal data, no matter their size, MUST comply with this largest shake up in the law in nearly 20 years.

Failure to comply with GDPR and the new Data Protection Act can land businesses and organisations with a maximum £17million fine or 4% of turnover (whichever is the highest), a substantial increase of the maximum fines under the Data Protection Act 1998.

The fines are only a small part of the issue, the reputational damage and rectification could be a lot more costly to your business or organisation than any proportionate fine.
