The General Data Protection Regulation came into force in the UK on 25th May 2018. There has been a significant impact for SMB’s.
At this point in time, it is not possible to gain any kind of certification in either GDPR compliance auditing or inspection. It is expected that this will develop over the coming months or years. Therefore, be wary of anyone trying to sell you GDPR Services which result in certification.
