“Despite the nature of the EU Referendum results, UK businesses won’t be able to ignore significant data protection changes announced by the EU back in May.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – which represents the most significant adjustment to EU data protection since 1995 – will affect any businesses with dealings within the EU, regardless of their head office location. There are likely to be further implications for UK data as a whole too.
The changes come at a time of vital importance, as more and more information continues to be used and stored through the web. The sheer number of high-profile hacking scandals in the past year have only moved the issue further into the spotlight.” – Sean Potter, Evoluted, July 18th 2016
