Countdown to GDPR

The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on 25 May 2018The regulation will be a 'game changer'; a single set of rules governing how European citizens' data is used.

The world has changed greatly since the current data protection legislation was introduced. GDPR will address the impact of cultural, social and technological changes, such as cloud computing and social media. It will also impose legal obligations on data processors for the first time.

The effects will be far-reaching. All organisations will need to review the ways in which they deal with data. Businesses will need expert advice to comply with the regulation and adapt to the new administrative and reporting requirements.

Our GDPR hub

This hub compiles all of our GDPR content so we can share our insight and answer questions about some of the key changes under the regulation.
