• The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was implemented into UK Law by the Data Protection Act 2018 in May 2018 and saw the most significant change in data protection regulation in 20 years.

    The new regulations are designed to align privacy laws across Europe and increase protections and data privacy rights for individual citizens. All companies are required to comply with the new rules, with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) having the right to issue fines of up to 4% of a company’s annual turnover, or £20 million (whichever is greater) for the worst data offences.

    This page features some general information about some of the key elements of the applicable rules that affect business on a day-to-day basis, as well as some top tips about how to keep your organisation compliant.
