This Saturday marks one year to
the day that GDPR was enforced. 3 things are clear:
- The self-serving scaremongers were, as I suspected, full of $*%&;
- Anyone wondering why there have not been more fines continues to be ignorant of the true intent of GDPR; and
- Interest in GDPR took a nosedive after May 25, 2018
This is a blatant self-promotion, so feel free to ignore it!
I presented today at the BrightTalk Summit ‘GDPR: One Year Later‘:
According to every statistic I’ve read, there is still a huge chunk of business owners who have not even read the GDPR yet, let alone done anything about it. To be clear; no matter the size of your business, you have to comply.
I was actually chuckling to myself as I wrote that title because I know you were thinking [the equivalent of] one of the following as you clicked on the link:
- If you have not read the GDPR: “That would be awesome!”
- If you have read the GDPR: “Don’t be so bloody stupid.”
I have lost count of the number of times I have included phrases like; “You have to ask the right questions.” into my blogs, or into conversations with prospective clients. One of my primary roles as a consultant is to to either help my clients do just that, or to give them the right answers first if they are just too far behind the curve.
