GDPR - one year on
Last week, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) turned one year old. Like any infant, teething issues and maybe even some sleepless nights can be expected while regulated firms adjust processes and policies to ensure compliance with the regulation.
So, one year on, how is the industry doing? Well, according to some experts as many as 40% of SMEs in the UK don’t yet know who is affected by GDPR and there may be a further percentage who don’t know the new rights for consumers that GDPR brought in.
Firms simply cannot afford to remain unaware nor can they fail to make the required changes needed to ensure compliance with the legislation and the spirit of greater consumer protection. The first signs of consumer and regulatory legal action against firms are emerging, so non-compliance or adverse consumer impact will be penalised.
Here's what our content partner MicroLearn had this to say about GDPR training one year on:
