Every business has a legal responsibility to protect the personal data it holds about individuals.
The penalties for a breach can be harsh, and the regulations are often complex – especially when businesses share data with others, or work internationally where other jurisdictions apply.
Having the right advice about how to store, manage and share personal data is essential to ensure compliance with legal regulations including GDPR.

Here, they have compiled a collection of articles and guides to cover common topics including the basics of data protection, how to respond to Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs), what to do if a breach occurs, and a look at the latest changes to data protection law.
