Data Protection and Privacy

The last few years have seen significant changes in this area  both from a regulatory and a consumer perspective.   Not to mention the hundreds of data breaches we are hearing about on a weekly basis.  Businesses have several regulations to understand and comply with including the General Data Protection Regulation, ePrivacy Directive, Data Protection Act 2018.  And then we have the imminent (or not so) Brexit which will have impacts on how businesses transfer data and representation issues.

This is a worrying time for businesses and consumers, and the consequences of getting it wrong are severe with regulatory fines ever increasing and consumer confidence at its lowest.
