Data Protection Regulation

 

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which took effect in May 2018, was introduced to harmonise data protection practices throughout the EU, particularly focusing on the areas of transparency, compliance and enforcement.   This regulation was implemented in the UK by the Data Protection Act 2018

Turcan Connell is committed to high standards of information security, privacy and transparency. We assessed the new regulations when they were introduced and continue to keep regulations, guidance and industry best practice under review.

We are registered as a data controller with the Information Commissioner.

We are bound by professional obligations in relation to confidential information.
