The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to be introduced in May 2018 marks the biggest shake-up in data protection law in decades. All organisations will need to make changes to how they use and protect information relating to individuals or face potentially massive fines of up to 4% of a company’s global turnover. UK-based organisations will need to take steps to comply, regardless of business type and size. If you are a data processor, your obligations are much greater. Both individuals and the Information Commissioner’s Office (the regulator in charge of enforcing data protection law) will have the right to sue you for failure to comply.
