Are you GDPR Ready?

Now is the time to act

May 2018 will see the first comprehensive overhaul and replacement of European Data Protection Regulation in twenty years. The General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR as it's widely referred to, impacts any organisation that holds or processes data on EU citizens, regardless of where it is located, within the EU or otherwise.

Compliance is mandatory by 25th May 2018, and there are potentially serious consequences for those organisations who fail to comply, with fines of up to €20 million or 4% of a company's global turnover for the previous year being levied, whichever amount is higher.
