Is GDPR the new Health & Safety Act?

If you haven’t heard about GDPR yet, then your head must be well and truly buried in the sand.   All businesses, no matter what size, are affected by these new regulations which come into force on 25 May 2018.

In fact, there has been so much hype around the GDPR regulations, we can but wonder whether they are set to become as stringent in terms of data protection as the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974.

Although the UK has had a two-year period to implement the new data protection regulations, many businesses have left matters till the last minute. But are we about to create a monster that will end up driving hundreds of companies up the wall because they can’t meet the ICO’s time-scales, can’t afford the huge financial penalties or miss out a hyphen in someone’s name?  Read more here.

HCHR is offering a range of support packages to business of all sizes, from a one-man band to large manufacturing companies to ensure that they comply with the GDPR regulations.
