Matthew Pryke comments on new data protection rules in The Times

Commercial Technology partner, Matthew Pryke has commented on the implications of new data protection rules for small businesses in The Times.

The article warns businesses that they risk enormous fines if they ignore an overhaul of data protection rules that will affect organisations of all sizes.

It explains that: “The biggest change in a quarter of a century in how companies process information, such as customer lists and employee records, comes into force next May, yet there is little awareness among smaller organisations.”

Matthew comments: “Too many businesses are complacent. Those who leave it to chance and don’t prepare now could be left high and dry if the ICO finds that businesses breach regulations.”
