The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) will apply in the UK from 25 May 2018. The government has confirmed that the UK’s decision to leave the EU will not affect the commencement of the GDPR.
This will put greater legal obligations on anyone (company or individual) who is a “controller” or a “processor” of personal data, including an obligation to report any data breach.
This will effectively catch all businesses, regardless of what they do, how much they turnover or how many staff they employ.
The ICO now has the power to fine any business in breach of these rules up to 4% of their Annual worldwide Turnover, or €20m (whichever is greater). They have also been given more resource to bring prosecutions under the new rules and they have already targeted a number of businesses, large and small, and dished out some big fines.
Your business can’t afford to ignore this.
Join us for our GDPR session where we will take you through the practical steps you need to take now to get ready for this new regulation.
The aim of this session is to:
- Give you the tools to work out what aspects of GDPR might apply to your business; and
- To focus on how to carry on with direct marketing activities compliantly and what steps you need to take in relation to employee data, contracts and policies.
