Data protection requirements have undergone 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 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.
With the GDPR hailed by the ICO as the “biggest shake up for consumers’ data protection rights for three decades” making sure you are aware of obligations and rights is of paramount importance. Our experts can help you navigate the impact of the GDPR and guide you through the practical implications of the change in the law from data mapping and risk assessments to breach reporting and subject access requests.
