Since 25th May 2018 The General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (“GDPR”) and the new Data Protection Act 2018 ("DPA") have provided the legislative framework for data protection in the UK.

Under the new regime many new rules and concepts have been introduced, including the principle of accountability, mandatory breach reporting, provision of comprehensive privacy information, not forgetting the significantly increased fines.

Our 12 month countdown (which is available below) provided 12 preparatory steps for businesses to take in the lead up to 25 May 2018 and provides a useful checklist for business to ensure that they comply with the new data protection laws. 

It is important for all organisations to see data protection compliance as an ongoing obligation which requires a regular review of practices and policies.
