Full episode description:
On 25 May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”) comes into force. The new regime will apply to organisations both within and potentially outside the European Union (EU) which hold, use, process or disclose personal data. Under the new rules companies can face fines of up to 4% of global annual revenue or €20 million, whichever is the higher, for the most serious of breaches. Barry Fishley and members of his team discuss the steps that organisations need to take if they have only just started to think about compliance.
