The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25 May 2018 and will affect most businesses in the UK. The government has confirmed that the UK’s decision to leave the EU will not affect the commencement of the GDPR.
If your business holds records of personal data, including customer, supplier and employee information you will need to be compliant. To avoid potential sanctions this data must be held, processed and protected in accordance with the GDPR.
Warners Solicitors is a leading law firm in the South East and Kevin Sullivan, a Partner in the Corporate Commercial & IP team, will be outlining the legal ramifications. Kevin will be joined by Andy Styles, a Risk consultant with Risk Evolves Ltd, who will give practical advice on how to plan to make sure your business is ready.
