GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and UK Data Protection Act 2018 came into force on 25 May 2018, replacing the UK’s previous data protection framework. UK companies will have to have  a good foundation for meeting the requirements of the new legislative requirements. However, as the GDPR applies to all organisations that operate both within and outside the EU and which offer goods and services to customers in the EU and who gather, retain and share personal data, the challenges for non EU organisations are likely to be greater.

Compliance with the GDPR is a key business priority which global organisations in all sectors should now be addressing.

Are you ready for GDPR?

No matter where your business is based or how large it is, if you currently gather, retain and share personal data on EU customers, it is vital that you take steps to ensure you are compliant. Data protection Supervisory Authorities in the EU Member States are now reviewing compliance levels by companies and organisations that may have taken a “wait and see” approach to compliance may find themselves subject to significant enforcement consequences.

Information audits to identify what data your business holds, whether it is stored correctly and regularly verified and disposed of is a necessary tool in achieving compliance. This exercise will also enable you to identify the reasons you have for processing personal data and where relevant, if consent is required.

For further information on the steps that need to be taken, please see the following information sheets:
