The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the biggest development in data protection law this century. It has been created to strengthen data protection for all individuals in the EU and to ensure organisations are accountable for how they use our personal data.
GDPR will apply from May 2018, so if your organisation processes personal data about EU citizens, then your organisation will need to comply.
The Regulation is not just limited to the marketing or sales departments. GDPR is likely to impact on all areas of your organisation if it involves the management of personal information relating to your customers or employees.
