As most of you will be aware, new EU wide data protection rules (GDPR) will be implemented as of 25 May 2018. This will have a direct impact on all businesses with employees as well as ones that hold customer and prospects personal data.

GDPR will bring data protection into the 21st century, however failure to comply with the regulations could result in heavy fines of up to 20 million Euros or 4% of company annual turnover.
