The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a major new piece of

after Brexit through the new Data Protection Act. The new stringent data
protection requirements apply to all organisations in the EU (and it is
even extra-territorial in that it also applies to many organisations
entirely outside of the EU).

personal data is processed - and processing includes every activity

customer data, prospect data or supplier data. And there's plenty more
data too. The maximum penalties for getting it wrong have been increased
to the greater of 4% of annual global group turnover of an organisation
or 20 million Euros, depending on the severity of the breach. The

appears to be anonymised. It is essential to know what the law requires
