Countdown to introduction of new data regulation

25 May marked a year until the introduction of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The measure will affect the vast majority of small firms; it will bring about sweeping changes to the UK’s data protection laws, and the Information Commissioner’s Office has released an updated Small Businesses Toolkit so that firms are able to check whether they are compliant. The issue has already attracted significant attention from the region’s media and FSB members have been taking steps to understand how they will be impacted by the changes. Anyone who could act as a case study on the issue should contact Andrew.mower@fsb.or.uk
