What is GDPR?
The EU’s new data protection and privacy laws, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are close to becoming a reality. GDPR laws will take effect from 25 May 2018, and despite Brexit, it will still affect UK companies.
GDPR is going to have a significant impact on UK logistics companies. There is also going to be a huge increase in the fines for not complying with the new regulations. Up to €20m or 4% of group worldwide turnover, whichever is higher in some cases.
GDPR compliance might seem overwhelming, but it does not have to be that way.
Metafour is committed to providing a level of data security which meets the needs of our clients and conforms to the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulations.
We have been implementing an Information Security Project which aims to implement a systematic approach to developing our information security management system and having it externally audited to demonstrate that it meets the requirements for GDPR.
