Businesses warned to prepare with one year until data protection law change PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 25 May 2017
Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham has today told businesses there’s no time to delay in preparing for “the biggest change to data protection law for a generation”.

Speaking in a video addressing boardrooms, Ms Denham calls on businesses to see the commercial benefits of sound data protection, and act now to ensure they’re compliant by 25 May 2018:

“If your organisation can’t demonstrate that good data protection is a cornerstone of your business policy and practices, you’re leaving your organisation open to enforcement action that can damage both public reputation and bank balance. But there’s a carrot here as well as a stick: get data protection right, and you can see a real business benefit.”

Also marking one year until GDPR is implemented:

Elizabeth Denham is speaking to business leaders about the importance of cybersecurity at a Wall Street Journal event.

Deputy Commissioner Rob Luke is looking at GDPR and the digital economy at a Tech UK event.

An updated data protection toolkit for SMEs goes live on the ICO website, including a new element focussed on getting ready for GDPR. The checklist can help organisations assess their progress in preparing for GDPR.

The ICO launches its Information Rights Strategy, setting out its mission statement to increase public trust over the next four years.

The 12 steps to take to prepare for GDPR is relaunched, with updated guidance and increased focus on the need to act now to prepare for May 2018.
