What is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?
GDPR aims to harmonise data protection laws across the EU and provide stronger rights for individuals that reflect the monumental increase in the use of technology and data in business and personal lives.
To meet the new standards required, all businesses need to have in place comprehensive but proportionate measures to minimise the risk of breaches and uphold the protection of personal data.

Why is GDPR Important?
The importance of organisations taking GDPR seriously are reflected in the potential increase in fines.
These can range from £500,000 under the current Data Protection Act to the new higher amount of £20,000,000 or 4% of annual worldwide group turnover.
Following this legal framework will reduce your chance of being fined, as well as give you the confidence that you meet all related regulations.
