The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effective on 25/05/18. Many UK businesses are getting ready and while others may not yet heard of it or this is does not relate to them. Tougher fines and stricter regulations effect all businesses, across all industries and countries.
Remember, your business needs to take into account past and present employees and suppliers as well as customers (and anyone else’s data you’re getting hold of, storing and using)
Look hard at your security measures and policies. You’ll need to update these to be GDPR-compliant, and if you don’t currently have any, get them in place. Broad use of encryption could be a good way to reduce the likelihood of a big penalty in the event of a breach.
