From Friday 25 May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force, and as proactive, informed businesses, this is something we need to prepare for. It’s not too late to start preparing for this date! The toolkit above will give you and your business helpful pointers to act on.  Many of our members are experts in this field so do get in touch.
