General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): what does the public sector need to know?
- Published: 23 August 2017
This month, the Government confirmed its intention to write legislation in the form of a new Data Protection Bill to support the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – a move that will upgrade the UK’s privacy laws making them fit for purpose for the digital age.
There is now less than 12 months until GDPR comes into force, and while many organisations have already started to make significant strides in their Data Protection initiatives, time is almost running out before the GDPR comes into effect.
So how can organisations ensure a smooth transition? In our latest blog article, Idox Compliance takes a look at the likely impact of the GDPR on public sector organisations specifically, and explores whether Brexit will influence its integration into UK law. You can read the article here.
With the regulations coming into force in May 2018, Idox Compliance will also be hosting a webinar in collaboration with techUK on 5 October at 10am (GMT).
This has been developed with the aim of helping organisations working across both the public and private sectors prepare for the changes and understand their role in ensuring compliance. To find out more and register for the webinar, please click here.
