- I hadn’t heard about the coming changes
- I know the changes are coming, but not done anything about it yet
- I know about the changes, and i’ve already taken action
With the news hitting recently that the Data Protection Act is set for big change come next year, turning into the newly named General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - it’s going to mean all UK SMEs and event planners need to make sure we’re fully complying with the new system.

I’ve so far tried to look up a general overview of what we’re meant to do in regards to storing people’s data (i.e. our mailing lists), but I’m yet to get my head anywhere NEAR understanding it all!
Has anyone so far found a nice easy step by step tool that tells you exactly what we need to do to make sure we’ll fully comply with the new regulations? There’s lots of chatter around asking ‘are you ready’ and encouraging businesses to start the ball rolling as early as possible re. becoming compliant - but I think it needs to be clearer exactly what, practically, we need to do.
Anyone else in the same boat?
