GDPR brings technical challenges for IT and Telecoms service providers


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect in the UK on Friday, 25th May 2018, and will replace the UK Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA).GDPR affects nearly all organisations in the EU, including the UK, and it would be fair to say that if you have not taken steps by now to be compliant with the new regulations it’s likely you will miss the deadline and be at risk of having swingeing fines for non-compliance imposed upon your organisation by The Information Commissioner (ICO).
