GDPR for Accountants: Explained
The General Data Protection Regulation comes into force on 25 May 2018 and affects all EU businesses. Ahead of the start date, accountants in practice need to understand the implications on their processes and client data, and create a plan for compliance.
Our resident GDPR expert, Ian Cooper, explains the key points for accountants, provides detail on what your firm can do to prepare, and answers audience questions on the topic.
Ian Cooper is responsible for all aspects of cloud delivered workflow tools for UK accountants, within the Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters.
