The EU's General Data Protection Regulation takes effect on 25 May 2018. This means organisations have a matter of months to achieve compliance.

Much has been made in the press about the significant obligations that the GDPR will place on all organisations. It will undoubtedly be challenging for organisations to assess the actions that they need to take to move towards compliance and then implement those actions.

Our data protection team advises public, private and third sector organisations of all sizes (from SMEs to multi-nationals) on a range of matters from large scale projects to day-to-day advice. Our experience of advising some of the UK's best known organisations on privacy and data issues means we are best placed to advise on how you can overcome the challenges the GDPR brings.

We appreciate that a “one size fits all” approach will not work for GDPR compliance and more importantly will not meet the needs of your organisation. Our advice is pragmatic and context specific so we will focus on the issues that are really relevant to your organisation and tailor our advice in light of your operating environment. Our unique sector focus means that our team understands the commercial drivers in your sector and can provide risk based advice in that context.

For an overview of the GDPR, and more importantly what it means to your business, please watch the animation below.

Our data protection team are on hand to assist and advise on GDPR related issues whether your GDPR compliance project is in full swing and you need assistance with discrete tasks or whether you would like support with building a GDPR compliance programme.
