The Information Commissioner’s Office (“the ICO”) have published this week some of its first guidance on the new General Data Protection Regulation (“the GDPR”). The “12 Steps to take now” document Is a checklist of what organisations should be doing now to prepare for the GDPR and is available here.

The GDPR is now expected to be finalised by July 2016 and this latest ICO publication is a must for all organisations starting to plan for the changes to the law. The GDPR should be fully in force by 2018.
