Is your business prepared?
From Talk Talk to Carphone Warehouse, the number of large scale data breaches making the headlines has increased dramatically in recent years, and the threat to UK citizens increases as we continue to hand over more information about ourselves and subsequently increase the value of the data itself.
In an effort to improve personal data protection, the EU has compiled the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which will come into force on 25th May 2018.

Why has the GDPR come about?
The new legislation will replace the Data Protection Directive 1995 and Data Protection Act 1998 with an updated answer to personal data security; which will apply to businesses around the world.
One of the driving forces of the GDPR is the growing need for the harmonisation of data governance throughout the EU, as personal data becomes increasingly vulnerable in modern society. The GDPR aims to create a standardised data protection landscape, by enforcing strict laws that any business wishing to trade data with or within the EU must abide by, or face serious fines.
