GDPR Resources

The General Data Protection Regulation, a change in data privacy laws that must be followed

GDPR falls into 4 main areas

As you can see, this is an issue that technology can’t address on its own but it is far more encompassing than that. It is also down to the nature of the business you work in, how much personal data you hold, how you hold it and what the risk of it being breached is. As the GDPR is a newish regulation, it is also down to interpretation and what the legislation actually means can sometimes be a bit grey.
