General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Solicitors

 

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – Are you ready?

The GDPR comes into force on 25 May 2018, replacing all national data protection laws across Europe, including the 1998 Data Protection Act.

GDPR will therefore affect every business processing personal data in Europe, whether an EU member, or an organisation that provides goods and services within the continent.

What are the Penalties?

Non compliance under this new legislation will bring significant fines for businesses which can range from €10 million (or 2% of annual global turnover) to €20 million (or 4% of annual global turnover), depending upon the breach.

What Do I Need to Do?

If you and your business are not already preparing now, we strongly recommend you start to assess, plan and implement the likely changes to procedures and systems that will be required.

Farleys’ Commercial team can help you meet your GDPR obligations,  including advice on the following:

  • Data protection audit
