  • GDPR

A customised, proactive approach

The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is far reaching – and is the most rigorous new privacy law in 20 years. The new regulation replaced the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and affects organizations in the EU or those that offer goods and services to individuals in the EU, or that collect and analyse data related to EU residents, regardless of their location. This is a complex regulation that impacts nearly all businesses.

At BDO, our team of experienced professionals is dedicated to helping our clients succeed. We start by helping them understand their GDPR compliance obligations, before creating and executing a remediation plan designed to minimize cost and disruption while meeting all requirements.
