On 25 May 2018, Europe’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect, bringing with it a raft of changes to Europe’s current data protection regime – including increased territorial scope, new obligations for processors, enhanced accountability requirements, and the threat of significant fines (up to 4% annual worldwide turnover) for those that get it wrong.
Getting “GDPR ready” may seem a daunting task – but with careful planning, project management and prioritisation, it is an achievable one.
