General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on 28 May 2018.

Some of the changes, in particular the requirement for accountability, leave many businesses with a lot to do if they are to be sure of compliance. The GDPR introduces a number of new concepts and approaches, although many existing core Data Protection Directive principles will remain unchanged.

The GDPR’s provisions will affect organisations differently depending on the nature of their business.  At Birkett Long, we would encourage IT, data and marketing managers to find out what impact the new regulations will have on how they collect and use data so that they avoid any nasty surprises.

Our business team can help you understand the GDPR and its effect on your business.  For more information about the regulations contact Tracey Dickens on 01206 217326 or
