The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on 25 May 2018. It will affect how every business manages, protects and administers personal data.
I’m just starting to get my head around it and its consequences for my business. In the past few weeks I’ve moved from having my head buried in the sand to starting to think about the action plan of what I need to do to comply.
I’ve found these resources particularly helpful:
- The GDPR section of the Direct Marketing Association website
- The Information Commissioner’s Office Guide to the General Data Protection Regulation
I’ve also booked a place on this free webinar in January.
I’ll start gearing up for compliance in January 2018 and I’ll share what I’ve been doing and why as I go along, in case you – or anyone you know – would find it helpful. I’m also hoping that by being transparent, if you’re more of an expert than me, you’ll be able to point out anywhere I’ve gone wrong!
