If your organisation processes personal data, you are likely to be affected by the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which becomes effective in the UK in May 2018.
GDPR introduces significant reforms to the data protection landscape in Europe. Organisations that fail to prepare for these changes could be liable for penalties of up to the greater of 4% of turnover or €20 million.
