The EU General Data Protection Regulation

A collection of GDPR resources for UK Small Businesses

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation – or GDPR – represents one of the largest changes in data privacy laws for many years.

It will affect, to one extent or another, the vast majority of businesses in the UK – from new start-ups and micro-businesses, all the way up to large multi-nationals. Bigger organisations will have had their legal teams working on it for some time.

But small businesses are vulnerable, and from what we can see, it’s not even on the radar of most of the people we speak to – and that’s a concern.

We’ve created a series of articles that explain, from broad concepts all the way down to specific detail, the things that small businesses should know. GDPR effective date: 25th May 2018.
