The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the European Union's (EU) legislation for the protection of personal data within the EU and beyond. The GDPR introduces new responsibilities for both data controllers and data processors who must be compliant with the legislation's standards by 25th May 2018. It tackles the outdated data protection laws which exist throughout EU member states and facilitates the secure free-flow of data. Do you know that 74% of UK SMEs suffered a security breach in 2016? Under the new rules, breaches can cost your business 4% of your global annual turnover or £20m. Complying with the GDPR is crucial.
