General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

Wednesday 16th May 2018

The date for the new GDPR coming into force is only two weeks away!  Are you ready?

Last week, the ICO published their guidance on consent, and it is clear that, whilst the basic concept and definition of consent is not new, the GDPR sets a high standard.  Generally, the changes require businesses to have a clear opt-in method, good records of consent and simple ways for people to withdraw their consent.  This is reflective of the shift towards businesses being required to demonstrate how they are compliant, not just simply showing that they comply.

We have been working hard to advise our clients on the forthcoming changes and we have been providing a wide range of documents to ensure their GDPR compliance in the UK.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you need any assistance with GDPR or you would like us to review what you have done.
