Opting out of the EU GDPR is not an option

If you’re a UK business and under the impression that the EU GDPR won’t affect you due to BREXIT, think again!

Regardless of the UK’s pending departure from the EU, the General Data Protection Regulation must be adhered to by all businesses that handle data belonging to EU citizens, regardless of their geographical location, if they want to avoid being fined in the event of a data breach.

All breaches great and small
Small data breach incidents, often linked to human error/employee negligence, can be as costly/damaging as larger breaches.
