New Data Protection topic

On 25 May 2018, the Data Protection Act is being replaced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). There are no exemptions based on size or sector — all organisations must comply with its requirements in full or face a hefty potential fine. See this week's new topic Data Protection Provisions to keep up to date with the latest advice and developments.
