Are you GDPR Ready?

  • Blog
  • 30 October 2017

If you run a business, you are more than likely dealing with some sort of personal data. The way you need to handle this data is changing with the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into force on 25 May 2018.

These new regulations affect businesses of every size and sector, so there are things you need to do to get your business ready.

New powers could mean fines of up to 4% of global turnover, or £17m, can be levied on non-compliant organisations, so we’re encouraging all smaller businesses, and our members, to be prepared.
