The GDPR sets a high standard for personal data protection throughout the EU, imposes a raft of new (sometimes onerous) obligations on those handling the data, and also provides for a much more punitive enforcement regime.

Below, please find some links to podcasts discussing key areas of the GDPR, drawing on our practical experience of implementing GDPR projects for a range of different organisations.
