25 Jan UK Government Warns Orders Businesses to Protect Personal Data
At the recently held World Economic Forum in Davos, Digital Secretary Matt Hancock said that the UK is updating its laws to be able to give people more control over their data and warned British businesses to be ready for the upcoming Data Protection Bill.
To fill the role of the upcoming EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), UK’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport (DCMS) has introduced a new Data Protection Bill after Brexit. However, research say that around less than half of the business in UK are aware of the new EU rules which will be coming into force on May 25.
Hancock also encouraged British businesses to avail of the free help and guidance the Information Commissioner’s Office and the National Cyber Security Centre is offering.
