General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

What do I need to know about GDPR

In May 2018, the UK’s data protection law will change, when the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes in to force. For many organisations, this means significant changes in the way they store, access and use data held on employees, customers, prospects and stakeholders.

Penalties that could be enforced in the event of a data breach are also changing, so it’s vital that organisations of all sizes and all sectors are fully aware of their responsibilities.

At the GM Chamber of Commerce, we will be putting in place the necessary measures to ensure the stringent compliance with the new regulations.

In a series of blogs, we explore this regulation in detail  - we explain the different provisions of the GDPR and also offer practical advice on how to comply with the new provisions.
