COUNTDOWN TO THE GDPR: It's...
...until the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on 25 May 2018, significantly heightening the responsibilities of data controllers and processors as well as the rights of individuals, whilst also introducing potential fines for non-compliance of up to 4% of an organisation's global annual group turnover.
...to our dedicated website for data protection compliance! Shoosmiths is well placed to help you with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into force in May 2018 as well as ePrivacy regulation, marketing queries, data analytics, connected cars and devices and much more!

Other legislation is changing as well, with additional requirements in the ePrivacy field expected in the next year, and the ever-challenging battle for data security battle.
At Shoosmiths, we can help you with that.
