The clock is ticking, with only a few months to go until the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on May 25th 2018.

Like past year , the president proposes zeroing out funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which runs PBS. Congress has final say over spending - but Monday's budget proposal is seen as an important sign of Trump's priorities.

Olivia O'Kane, partner at Carson McDowell, said: "We are delighted to confirm that Sir Stephens has confirmed that he is available to open our session on 15 February 2018". The GDPR grants individuals the right to know when a decision was made automatically regarding their personal data and requires their rights to be maintained.

Jed Mole, European marketing director at Acxiom, said the research shows a clear trend towards greater real-life acceptance of data exchange as part and parcel of everyday life.

HR departments will likely be the most affected following IT and finance, as the GDPR gives both current and former employees more control over the data a business holds on them. The scope of GDPR is the personal data of European Union nationals, wherever they or their data may be in the world, whether or not the data subject lives in the European Union, and whether or not the firm operates in the EU!

Cloud service providers are considered processors and are not exempt from GDPR enforcement. What have you got, why have you got it and what do you use it for?
