General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), became law on the 25th May 2018. We are currently getting many enquiries from people who are now looking at it more closely due to the attention it has received in the press this week but the fact of the matter is, GDPR has been in the pipeline for many months, in fact businesses have had a two year preparation period.
We believe GDPR is a good thing as it will bring outdated personal data laws across the EU up to speed with an increasingly digital era. The previous data protection laws were put in place in 1995 and hasn't been able to keep pace with the levels of technological change.
