November 25, 2017 General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) - 6 months to go

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) comes into effect on 25 May 2018 and replaces most of the provisions of the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and other local data protection laws and directives across the European Union. It will introduce new procedures and tougher rules on how personal information must be handled and protected.

GDPR is clear and concise, but carries substantial financial penalties for non-compliance and significant reputational harm, than ever before.

The Information Commissioner’s Office has released the following “12 step checklist” highlighting how to prepare for the GDPR. Many of the GDPR’s main concepts and principles are much the same as those in the current Data Protection Act (DPA), so if you are complying properly with the current law then most of your approach to compliance will remain valid under the GDPR and can be the starting point to build from.

However, there are new elements and significant enhancements, so you will have to do some things for the first time and some things differently.
