How GDPR applies to entrepreneurs/business owners:
Despite the Brexit vote, the UK remains subject to EU laws until further notice. The GDPR would even still apply to your business if it were to be repealed, providing you’d want to continue to trade with or within an EU member state.
With the introduction of the GDPR it becomes clearer than ever that data protection is everyone’s responsibility. GDPR sets a standard that we’re already meeting at UKFast, but it’s fantastic to see this expanded industry-wide.
UKFast is committed to complying with data protection at the highest standard; throughout our business’ history we’ve not only met regulations but pushed beyond them, setting new standards and leading the market.
I believe that, as a business owner, it’s our job to exceed expectations when it comes to data protection; people trust us to do that. Successful businesses are built on strong customer relationships, so it’s important to be compliant with any new laws or regulations coming in. It’s not just the fine that’s at stake, but your reputation too.
