What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation, is a piece of legislation that came into effect on the 25th May 2018 and supersedes the UK Data Protection Act 1998. It covers numerous policies and issues including how data is collected, processed, used, stored and protected.

For many businesses, the introduction of The GDPR has presented the opportunity to review their current IT security processes.

Cost of compliance

The true cost of compliance is very much individual to each business, it’s difficult to put an actual price on because it’s going to be an ongoing rolling cost as companies will have to continue to invest in educating their employees in the new regulation, one thing that is for sure is that the cost for compliance will be far less than non-compliance.

Cost of non-compliance

  • Fines of £17.5m or 4% of global turnover
  • Compensation claims for damages suffered
  • Reputational damage and loss of consumer trust
