29 Nov GDPR – Are you ready? Guest Blog – Lindsey Davis, M+M Information Technology
Every organisation that processes or shares EU residents’ personal data has until May 2018 to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Ignoring the GDPR, or getting compliance wrong, could have costly repercussions. Organisations found to be in breach of the Regulation face administrative fines of up to 4% of their annual global turnover or €20 million – whichever is greater.
The GDPR will apply in the UK from 25 May 2018. The government has confirmed that the UK’s decision to leave the EU will not affect the commencement of the GDPR.
