New data protection rules
It’s not exactly a riveting subject, but there are new data protection rules coming into effect that could affect many businesses.
You’ve probably already seen plenty of ‘stuff’ about GDPR, which stands for General Data Protection Regulation.
The new legislation comes into effect in May 2018 and it’s relevant to any UK business, small or large, that holds customer data. In other words, most businesses.
To help Britain’s smallest firms get their house in order, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has confirmed that its GDPR helpline will go live on November 1 2017.
