Preparing for the GDPR should be a key consideration for organisations across the globe. In executive search there's certainly a growing interest in the changes to data protection legislation and how they may impact the profession. In fact in recent months the popularity of our GDPR webinars and resources has increased significantly and it seems as though everyone is talking about GDPR... even the Queen! With the UK's commitment to the GDPR confirmed in the Queen's Speech, if you haven't already, it's time to start thinking about your data and preparing for the GDPR.
Responding to the speech, a spokesman for the technology industry trade body techUK said: "We support the government's commitment to maintain the UK's world-class protection of people's personal data. This will include implementing the General Data Protection Regulation, the biggest transformation of data protection rules in a generation."
