Navigating the Evolving Landscape of Data Privacy Regulations

We’re constantly reviewing the challenges and effects of the privacy legislation in Europe, North America and beyond, with deep knowledge, experience and expertise spanning the EU GDPR, ePrivacy (Cookie Law), California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), The General Data Protection Law (LGPD) and more.

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation by the European Union that strengthens data protection and privacy for EU residents. It sets out strict rules for collecting, storing, and processing personal data and imposes heavy penalties on organisations that fail to comply with its requirements. Though the law was drafted and passed by the European Union (EU), it imposes obligations onto organisations anywhere – so long as they target or collect data related to people in the EU. The regulation came into effect in May 2018.

Tailored GDPR Compliance Solutions

Are you looking to navigate GDPR complexities with ease and build consumer trust? Our experienced team of GDPR experts can work closely with you to ensure your data privacy policies, processes and personnel remain compliant with all best practices and regulations for data security and privacy.

What does it mean to be 'GDPR compliant'?

To be GDPR compliant, an organisation must have appropriate policies, procedures, and technical measures in place to protect the personal data it collects and processes. This includes obtaining explicit consent from individuals to collect their data, ensuring data accuracy and integrity, implementing appropriate security measures, and allowing individuals to access, modify, or delete their data. Failure to comply with GDPR can result in significant fines of up to 4% of a company’s global annual revenue or €20 million, whichever is greater.

How do the UK's GDPR and EU's GDPR regulations compare?

It’s essential to remember that any UK business that offers services or goods to people based in the EU must meet the EU’s GDPR requirements. The UK’s decision to leave the EU has led to some confusion regarding the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the UK General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).


That said, the UK’s Data Protection Regulation closely follows the same data protection rules as the EU. The UK Data Protection Act (DPA) outlines data privacy laws, the data protection measures that public bodies must follow and lists the enforcement powers and processes. To learn more, please contact our friendly team – we’re always happy to answer any questions regarding privacy laws relevant to your organisation.
