What would happen if a professional body or trade association covered up nefarious or improper behaviour by members or officers of that organisation?

What can the general insurance industry learn from the BBC's founding principles?

May 25th marks the dawn of a new age, as the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR takes effect.

Most businesses are focusing on readying themselves for the transition to GDPR, but how many have considered their ongoing obligations once the new regulation is in place?

So, you have mapped out your data, trained your staff, written your policies, published your statements, checked your consents and created the necessary procedures in readiness for the implementation of GDPR on May 25th.

You can now sit back and relax, right?

Wouldn't the title 'General Personal Data Protection Regulation' or GPDPR have been more appropriate, to help mitigate the common misconception that, “it won’t apply to me as we only have B2B data.”

The office party should be a time for staff to relax after a year’s hard work, to celebrate shared achievements, and to bond as a team. However, alcohol, festivity and the blurring of professional boundaries can be a dangerous combination.

GDPR's accountability principle is a lot like a maths exam - you need to show your ‘workings out’.

The Modern Slavery Act 2015, which came into force on 29 October 2015, is a piece of legislation that has mostly gone unnoticed by the majority of the financial services industry.

For many, simply hearing the four letters ‘GDPR’ will cause their heads to slump, their arms to fold, and their general mood to sink to a level that even a good cup of coffee can’t lift.
