Data Protection Regulations

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force on 28 May 2018.

The new legislation will have a big impact on all businesses as they must take extra measures to ensure any data they hold is stored securely. If not they risk severe penalties for data breaches. They must also put in place procedures to erase data where requested to do so. The onus is on the business to be able to prove that they have done this, so they need to keep records. It will also affect businesses who send out unsolicited marketing material. From May 2018 they will need consent before sending mail-shots, whether by email or post.
