How much do you know about the GDPR?

1st November, 2017

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ll be aware that on 25th May 2018, European privacy and data protection law is changing dramatically with a far higher bar for privacy rights, security, and compliance entering into operation.

The General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, is fundamentally about protecting and enabling the privacy rights of individuals. The GDPR establishes strict global privacy requirements governing how you manage and protect personal data while respecting individual choice - no matter where data is sent, processed, or stored.

But what does this actually mean for your business, besides the hefty fines for non-compliance that have been highly publicised?
