GDPR Coming Into Effect on 25th May 2018
The General Data Protection Regulation, more commonly known as GDPR will come into effect on 25th May 2018. It is the biggest change to personal data privacy in over 25 years.
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has a guide 12 Steps to Take Now in preparation for the GDPR and a Getting Ready for the GDPR Checklist for data controllers and data processors. In addition, last year, the ICO delivered a session on the GDPR specifically tailored to the Independent Advice Network– the slides can be viewed below.
If you are a member of Advice NI and require further information on what this means for your Advice Service please contact us. Details of the ICO’s Northern Ireland office can be found here.
