Privacy, Data & GDPR

Privacy, Data & GDPR

Since GDPR came into force in 2018, the trend of increasing public awareness and concern about data privacy has taken a significant step-up.

This looks very unlikely to change and so all businesses, both large and small, need to ensure that they are remain aware of – and more importantly compliant with – their obligations in the realm of data protection and privacy.

And, while in many ways the GDPR, and the UK’s Data Protection Act 2018, were more evolution than revolution in the overall data protection regime, one area that did change significantly was the size of financial penalties that businesses can suffer if they get things wrong.
