As well as the legal and regulatory impact of a serious data protection incident, the harm to trust, brand and reputation can be literally incalculable. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on 25 May 2018 and created significant new obligations, as well as massively increased financial penalties – up to €20m or 4% of global turnover.
