GDPR regulations – be ready for the 25th of May or pay the price


The new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) come into effect on 25th May 2018 and replace the Data Protection Act. This will affect every business that handles customer information, how they process it, how they gain consent and how they keep it safe.

Kent County Council has produced some basic guidance to help businesses understand where they can start.
