The Information Commissioner’s Office has just published its latest guidance on the  General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The ICO began drafting the guidance before the BREXIT referendum, but has confirmed again that it is still relevant to organisations wishing to transfer personal data to and from the EU. The guidance is a good overview of the changes that need to be implemented between now and 2018 and can be accessed here.

If you would like advice on how your organisation can start preparing for the new data protection legislation, please contact Tracey Wakelam at Exeter solicitors covering Devon, Cornwall and the rest of the UK.
