GDPR is here. Compliance has just begun.

The General Data Protection Regulation has now come into force. The UK’s third generation of data protection law has received Royal Assent and its main provisions commenced on 25 May 2018. The new Act aims to modernise data protection laws to ensure they are effective in the years to come. VinciWorks has hosted a number of webinars to help businesses prepare for the EU-wide law.

On 24, VinciWorks hosted a full-day live webcast to answer questions, interview experts and review the changes to data protection law under GDPR.
