EU General Data Protection Regulation


The number of reported Cyber-attacks is on the increase and
the onus on large companies in having to provide greater
protection of their customer’s data is becoming clear.
The British Chamber of Commerce tells us that only one in four
organisations have put some kind of cyber security solution in
place, and with our growing reliance on the Cloud and the
increase in the amount of data we create through our varying
devices highlights a need for change.
The forthcoming EU GDPR legislation is a marker for
consumers and businesses that change is coming. The
legislation is designed to harmonise data protection laws
across Europe to protect and empower citizen’s data privacy
and reshape the way organisations approach customer data
security. The new legislation is coming into effect on Friday
25th May 2018, GDPR replaces the Data Protection Directive
