GDPR update

Whatever stage of GDPR-readiness your organisation has reached, ICAEW has resources that can help you to consolidate and go further, writes Lesley Meall.

The big day passed on 25 May 2018, the world didn’t end and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is now enforceable across the European Union (EU). However, many organisations still have some I’s to dot and T’s to cross on the road to compliance.

Statutory bodies, such as the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) in the UK, did not expect every affected organisation to have the all of the necessary policies and procedures in place on the big day. But the ICO does expect them to have made a start and to have a plan demonstrating how they will become GDPR-ready and when.

It does not help that information has been slow to emerge from the ICO since the EU adopted the GDPR in 2016, and there are still aspects where definitive guidance is lacking and where accepted practice will emerge over time and as legal precedents are set.

Meanwhile, businesses are doing their best to comply.

This is an extract from the Business & Management Magazine, Issue 265, June 2018.
