As we approach a year since GDPR came into force, in a recent webinar we revisited our popular GDPR Mythbusters series with a new round of questions and answers about data protection. Our Director of Best Practice Gary Yantin and Director of Course Development Nick Henderson answered the following questions:
- Are huge GDPR fines a myth?
- Does anyone actually care about GDPR compliance?
- Does enforcement really go beyond EU borders?
- Does GDPR apply to me if I’m not based in the UK?
- Does GDPR require me to appoint a DPO?
