The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was simply the latest in a series of data protection legislation aimed at improving individuals’ rights over their personal data and imposing penalties on organisations which fail to protect that data.

Organisations are now required to have in place systems and processes which secure the personal data held and protect the privacy of the individuals involved. The consequences of failure in terms of potential fines and reputational damage are potentially enormous.

This ever evolving privacy landscape has led to a significant increase in demand for the services offered by the Grant Thornton Privacy and Data Protection team. Our dedicated team are made up of a combination of subject matter experts, technical specialists and legal professionals who can also draw upon the expertise of the Grant Thornton’s business consulting team when necessary.
