The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR for short) is a data protection regime, which came into force on 25 May 2018.

The regime, which replaces the Data Protection Act 1998, has implemented a number of changes in the legislation governing how businesses use and store data.

There are a number of requirements for firms and stricter penalties for those businesses which fail to adhere to them.

This means that it is especially important that your business takes the relevant steps to ensure that it follows best practice and continues to meet all of its obligations.

At Joelson, we understand businesses may have questions about the GDPR and the steps required to ensure you remain fully compliant.

We can advise clients on:

  • How to comply with the GDPR
  • How to undertake a data impact assessment
  • Lawful processing of data (including consent)
  • Accountability and governance obligations
  • Data Protection Officers
  • The responsibilities of data processors
  • Reporting a data breach
  • Individuals’ rights under GDPR
  • Updating privacy policies and notices
  • Reviewing and updating terms and conditions and contracts.
