Countdown to GDPR

Make sure your organisation is ready for 25 May 2018


Data protection requirements are set to undergo major reform with the introduction of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25 May 2018.

Companies need to ensure that they are aware of their legal obligations and comply with these to prevent information from being misused or falling into the wrong hands. With fines under the GDPR set to increase to up to €20 million or 4% of a company’s global annual turnover (whichever is higher), compliance is an issue companies cannot afford to ignore.
