What does it mean to your business
Your business will continue as usual but to be competitive we will be necessary to adopt the GDPR as it will give your business a chance to be compliant with the new EU regulations even though we are out of the EU but need to continue to trade with it. There may be changes you need to introduce to meet the regulations but if your using the Current DPA legislation it will be a few changes and take staff to be updated with the new rules.For other countries who wish to trade they will also need to have a reciprocal set of rules that match the GDPR. This will mean things like client information will need to be stored in a certain manor and the processing of the information will need to match too.
