The ICO has launched a dedicated advice line to help small organisations prepare for a new data protection law.

The phone service is aimed at people running small businesses or charities and recognises the particular problems they face getting ready for the new law, called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The GDPR replaces the current Data Protection Act.  Regulated by the ICO, the GDPR strengthens the rules around personal data and requires organisations to be more accountable & transparent.  It also gives people greater control over their own personal data.
