Data protection has always been important for businesses but the arrival of the more exacting General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has resulted in most businesses having to review and change a lot of their activities and policies relating to what they do with data.
The GDPR is European law - a regulation - that was automatically applied in the UK when it came into force in May 2018. Even now that the UK has left the EU, the GDPR will be adopted into UK law. So businesses will need to comply with it.
We advise our clients on the current law - helping them to put in place privacy policies for collection of data, along with internal policies to ensure compliance with data protection laws.
We are also helping clients stay compliant with the GDPR - by advising on the key changes to the law, auditing current practices and advising on necessary changes. Businesses need to make sure they have processes and policies in place to keep their data protection up to date.
We have a lot of tech clients who are constantly having to think about data protection in their everyday activities. We provide all of these with regular updates on GDPR and the changes they need to think about making.
