Following on from our team’s earlier post regarding the the new EU General Data Protection Regulation being now much closer, the UK’s Information Commissioner has welcomed this (after 1422 days of negotiations!).  He recommends complying with the current law as an appropriate first step to compliance with the new laws, which will come into force in a couple of years’ time, but also that the ICO will provide guidance on the new topics in the coming months.  Our team will also be analysing the impacts and providing briefings, webinars and guidance.

2016 will be an interesting year!  Our festive best wishes to all our readers as well.
