GDPR Compliance – The Clock is Ticking

Achieving compliance with the impending GDPR, the new EU data privacy law – which comes into effect on 25th May, 2018 – should be viewed more as an ongoing process rather than a one-off activity.

Companies have until 25th May, 2018 to become GDPR compliant, and while the new regulation removes much of the existing complexity in the area of Data Protection, the regime itself will be much stricter, with action required by companies to ensure operational compliance by the deadline.

So what is GDPR?

Under European Parliament, GDPR will protect personal data for all individuals within the European Union (EU), this includes the export of personal data outside of the EU. Personal data can be anything relating to an individual within their private, personal, or public life including names, photos, posts on social media sites, or a computer’s IP address.

We want to help our clients overcome as many of the initial challenges as possible, so we’ve pulled together a step by step guide or ‘how-to’, to help you get organised.
