Data Protection laws are undergoing the most significant overhaul in the past 20 years. The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will become law on May 25th 2018.
The new regulation will be enforced with penalties for non-compliance of the greater of €20 Million, or 4% of gross global turnover for the previous year. It will impose legal obligations on organisations and afford new rights to those whose personal data is being held. With financial penalties for non-compliance being so substantial, it is absolutely vital that your organisation is fully prepared as early as possible.
