Make sure your organisation is compliant


Data protection requirements have undergone major reform with the introduction of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25 May 2018.

With fines under the GDPR of 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.
