ICAS guide to preparing for GDPR

Guide to GDPR for practice community

The General Data Protection Regulation (or "GDPR") represents the biggest shake-up of data protection law in almost 25 years. ICAS has created a guide to preparing for GDPR with customisable styles and checklists to help you and your team prepare for GDPR compliance before 25 May.

GDPR comes into force on 25 May 2018, ushering in a new regime for how personal data – broadly,  information about identifiable living individuals - must be handled, with a greater emphasis on transparency, and backed up with much tougher sanctions for breaches.

Given the importance of GDPR to ICAS Members and Firms, we have joined with the law firm, Brodies LLP, to produce a Guide which provides introductory practical guidance and support to CAs on some of the main issues we expect them to face when preparing for GDPR compliance.

You can also access the latest GDPR news and developments on the GDPR News page.
