Countdown To Data Protection Changes Starts Now.... How Prepared Are You?

Countdown To Data Protection Changes Starts Now.... How Prepared Are You?

In exactly two years from today – 25 May 2018 – the new General Data Protection Regulation will be brought into force in the UK, bringing about a revolution of data protection laws.

The new Regulation was the main focus of our recent annual Data Protection Lunch & Learn seminars across Scotland – many thanks to all who were able to make it – we spoke to just over 200 people!  The variety of different data protection issues being discussed demonstrates the increasing impact that this area of law is having on organisations of all shapes and sizes.  It’s clear that over the next two years, data protection will be climbing up the compliance agenda.

In a first for us, we are looking to get an idea of the main data protection issues which you face in your role.  We have launched the Data Protection in 2016 Survey, which will be open for responses until 8 June.

So, if you have a spare few minutes, we would love to hear about your experiences.  The survey will take no longer than 5 minutes and – of course – no personal information will be collected and all responses will be completely confidential.
