EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – Wedlake Bell Webinar on April 25, 2017

From May 25, 2018 new data protection rules will apply to all EU countries.

If you operate anywhere in the EU you should by now be preparing to comply with the GDPR.   

While the GDPR will bring greater consistency across the EU, organisations that fail to comply face greater sanctions. The GDPR can apply even if you are based outside the EU but do business with European citizens.

It is significantly more prescriptive than existing law, imposing new obligations on organisations that use personal information, and enhancing individuals’ rights.

Penalties for breaching the GDPR can be up to 4% of your organisation’s worldwide annual turnover or €20,000,000, whichever is greater. As the importance of data protection and cyber security becomes more widely recognised, increased regulatory action seems likely.
