Are you ready for the new EU Data Protection Regulation?
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is surely going to be one of the biggest issues that businesses will face in 2017. This new EU regulation comes into force in 25th May 2018 and companies need to start preparing now in order to ensure they are compliant in time for the deadline.
The new regulation comes with severe consequences for serious breaches, including large scale fines.
You can learn more about the details by visiting the Information Commissioner’s Office website (use this link: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/data-protection-reform/overview-of-the-gdpr/).
What about BREXIT?
The government has confirmed that the UK’s decision to leave the EU will not affect the commencement of the GDPR, so UK business still need to be ready! Now is the time to get prepared.
Professional services company KPMG is warning CEOs not to stall on preparing their businesses for the arrival of GDPR and says UK businesses cannot afford to ignore incoming European data protection requirements if they want to continue to trade successfully with the continent in future despite the ongoing uncertainty around how its contents will apply to them in the wake of the June 2016 Brexit vote.
