EU data protection laws adopted into UK law

The government’s plans to revise the UK’s data protection laws, announced this month, will effectively ensure that the UK remains compliant with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which is applicable from May 2018.

This announcement is helpful for businesses and should clarify some of the confusion around the need or otherwise to prepare for the GDPR. 

Leo martin argues in Ethical Corporation that early preparation for the new laws makes good business sense.
