What is it?
GDPR is the current “buzzword”, and the topic of many discussions in business forums right now.
You probably know it’s about data, it stands for General Data Protection Regulation. Data protection principles were originally based on the 1998 act, you can just imagine how much things have changed! It is a clear a power shift from the business to the customer and it means you will need permission in your business to store and continue your marketing discussions with your customers.
What does it mean for you?
So, what are the implications of a business breaking the rules? Firstly, huge fines, these fines could equate to 4% of the turnover of a large company. The smaller companies need to watch out too, as the ICO will fine and make an example of just about anyone who breaks these rules.
