The view from London

We live in strange times.  Perhaps it is a product of our Britishness that we appear to have our heads firmly in the sand about the impending departure from the European Union.  Some people still think that Brexit will not happen; some have accepted (or embraced) the fact that we are leaving the EU, but many of them have seen that the world has continued much the same since the referendum.  They don’t seem to have grasped that triggering Article 50 is only the prelude.  Brexit is what is going to happen in March 2019.  Ready or not.

Getting to grips with GDPR

The 25 th May 2018 will be forever etched in the minds of many people, following the myriad of emails they received in the weeks leading up to the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), reminding them of this important date. Now that it has passed and the GDPR is in force, the way that data protection is regulated across Europe and beyond has changed, affecting both EU citizens who it is designed to protect and organisations required to comply with its terms. For some, the “big day” was perhaps a little anticlimactic. Teams of regulators did not...
