Some helpful hints on GDPR
As you may be aware, GDPR (The General Data Protection Regulation) is a new piece of legislation coming into effect as of May 2018 — but we’re finding that quite a few people still aren’t especially familiar with the term.
It’s a significant law that will change the way organisations are required to manage data, so it’s important to be aware of it and ready for the changes.
We’ve been busy doing prep work for it ourselves and have found that the following articles and resources have made things a bit easier to understand. We think they could be helpful for you too and might come in handy for getting to grips with GDPR.
Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
