Why is GDPR compliance so important?

All organisations use personal data to some extent, whether it relates to their employees, members, suppliers or customers. Most organisations now keep vast amounts of personal data from emails, marketing databases and employment files. However, if this information is misused, the impact can be substantial. That’s why businesses must take appropriate care of the personal data they hold.

The Data Protection Act 2018 introduced significant changes to how organisations can use personal data, regardless of their size or sector. Now, all businesses need to know how to comply with data protection laws.
