GDPR deals with data protection for all individuals within the EU and is due to come into force in May 2018. Brexit will not have an impact on this legislation being made law in the UK.
GDPR is something that all business need to be aware of and take steps to ensure that they are compliant. There are ever increasing reports of cyber attacks on major organisations resulting in significant data breaches.
It is therefore surprising that research shows that SME's do not fully understand the requirements of this legislation or the consequences should they get this wrong. A significant amount of SME's appear to have been victim to cyber attacks but only a minority see protecting themselves against this is a priority.
Brabners is holding a series of seminars on GDPR and cyber security with the next one being in Manchester on Friday 29 September. Please click here to register for the seminar.
