It’s been the topic of much discussion in the insurance community for months, if not years, but D-Day for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is finally around the corner. May 25, 2018, will see the GDPR come into force, applying to all companies that deal with EU nationals, whether based in the EU or outside – and Brexit is no excuse. The regulation is a modern overhaul of the data protection landscape, at a time when the value of personal data and how organisations are handling it, has never been more relevant. Under the GDPR, non-compliance could prove extremely costly for companies: potential maximum fines being brought in are up to €20 million (£17.4 million), or 4% of annual turnover.
