GDPR - The Deadline Day is looming.

Data Protection was introduced as a legal concept, beyond confidentiality rules in 1998 when the Data Protection Act was passed and the ICO was set up. At Christmas 2017 there were about 100 employees at the ICO. When the changes to the rules are introduced on 25 May, the ICO will have recruited 300 more employees. In these stringent times, the government would not be increasing staff unless it hoped to make a profit. The way it will make a profit will be to fine non-compliant businesses.

This data is what businesses hold about
