GDPR – you need to start thinking about this

GDPR is a European Directive that looks at data protection.  It comes into force in May 2018 and whilst you may sit there and think “Ah, it’s European, we’re heading out of the EU and therefore this won’t matter too much” you’d be wrong.  Firstly, we’ll still be part of the EU when it comes into force so therefore you’ll need to comply.  Secondly, it could be that this is something the UK adopts even post Brexit and finally, it’s likely that if you wish to do business with any country in Europe then they will look for evidence that you comply with the legislation anyway.  Find out more about this new legislation.
