General Data Protection Regulation: The new laws that every EU business must obey (this includes the UK even after Brexit)
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be enforced from 25 May 2018.
It affects all organisations that hold personal data on EU citizens - including the UK.
It is a set of rules that companies must follow in order to protect the data they store.
Implementing a data protection strategy that includes encryption and anti-malware security is vital.
Potential fines for not being GDPR compliant range up to £20m or 4% of worldwide, annual turnover – whichever is higher.
