Data Privacy and Protection in UK Law (as of April 2020)

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The Keeling Schedules

The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EU Directive) Regulations 2003 (PECR)

The Security of Network and Information Systems Regulations (NIS)

Wondering if you’re compliant?
