There has been a great deal of activity across the Channel Islands because of the pending introduction of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Expected to come into force in May 2018, the GDPR has extra-territorial effect and will apply to any entity offering goods and services into the EU. Jersey and Guernsey are also seeking to overhaul their own domestic legislation to match the essential safeguards of data subjects and their personal data set out within the GDPR within the same timeframe.
Whilst all businesses in the Channel Islands will therefore need to consider how they will ensure effective compliance before next year’s deadline, there is no need to panic.
We have a dedicated team, led by partner Edward Drummond, who have a thorough understanding of the GDPR and its implications and can steer your business towards an appropriate response to the coming changes.
