Information security continues to be a hot topic for businesses, including the almost daily reports of data breaches.
Many small business owners will have pencilled in May 25, 2018 as the date when the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force. But it’s also likely they all have the same question: what does GDPR mean for my business and me?
The simple answer is that it means a lot. Any company, big or small, will have to comply with new regulations regarding the secure collection, storage and usage of personal information. What’s more, violations will be met with fines.
Join Digital Catapult Centre Yorkshire as we discuss all things GDPR and some basics around cyber security.
