GDPR One Year On

Fines issued over the past twelve months have already totalled €56m. And watchdogs say the European data protection agencies are just warming up. Yes that includes here in the UK.

In the first few months alone, more than 205,000 cases were reported across 31 countries.

GDPR headache solved

Oh what a headache. GDPR is finally here. We’ve written a guide to make it easy for you

Most businesses have been putting this off for years.

Putting what off? Implementing the new GDPR data protection laws. It finally comes into play on 25th May.

GDPR law change in May is dull – but will have a big effect on your business

It’s called GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation – to replace the data protection act.
And the fines for breaking it are huge… up to €20m. Scary.
The main aim of GDPR is to give individuals a greater level of control over their personal data. This means that all companies who hold any customer information will be subject to strict rules.
