25th May 2018: D-day For Data Protection (GDPR)

canstockphoto30465718

Following its formal adoption by the European Parliament in April, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was published on 4th May 2016 in the Official Journal. This means that it will be directly applicable throughout the EU (without the need for implementing legislation) from 25th May 2018.

Data Controllers now have two years to prepare for the biggest change to the EU data protection regime in 20 years.  With some breaches of the Regulation carrying fines of up to 4% of global annual turnover or 20 million Euros, everyone has to take Data Protection seriously.

 All Data Protection practitioners and lawyers need to read the Regulation and consider its impact on their organisation and clients. Act Now has a series of blog posts as well as a dedicated GDPR section on its website with articles on the different aspects of the Regulation.

Training and awareness at all levels needs to start now. We are running a series of GDPR webinars and workshops. Five out of eight of the next GDPR workshops are fully booked. We have also started running workshops on specific aspects of the Regulation e.g. Information Risk and Security.

Our team of experts is available to come to your organisation to deliver customised data protection/GDPR workshops as well as to carry out health checks and audits.

If you are looking for an up to date DP qualification with a focus on GDPR, have a look at our Data Protection Practitioner Certificate.

The next two years need to be spent wisely. Act Now can help you prepare for the Regulation in the most cost effective manner whilst also ensuring you and your organisation are fully prepared.
