GDPR – are you prepared?

by MJV&Co

There has been much talk of the General Data Protection Regulations or GDPR across the media. Following the Facebook / Cambridge Analytica scandal that continues on, the subject of personal data and how to protect it has been in the news almost every day.

The Information Commissioner’s Office or ICO have been publicising the need for all businesses to register with them and to take steps to comply with the rules prior to 25 May, but almost all our small business clients have taken little of no action to date. Matthew Vincent of MJV Solicitors said, “I’ve spent days looking into GDPR and how it will affect our small business clients. Most of them seem to think it does not apply to them, but when I explain to them that it does, they get worried that it will be an added burden that they do not need.”

The guidance provided by the ICO is comprehensive, but changes or is added to all the time and most small business owners simply do not have the time to spend two to three days reviewing it. MJV Solicitors will provide you with a complete solution to GDPR compliance for a fixed fee. Time is running out to comply by 25 May 2018 and so contact us today on, 01253 858231 or DM us to arrange an appointment.
