Welcome to our last eNewsletter of the year, and as we come to the end of another year, it may surprise some readers to be reminded that it is now over 3 years since the EU GDPR regulations came into force in the UK. To be fair, the last couple of years have offered some rather powerful distractions!

Nonetheless, it is interesting to think that there was so much coverage given to GDPR's arrival in the years and months before it came into force, but in truth it seems to the casual observer like its impact has perhaps not been as huge as might have been expected. But is this true, or is it more that - similarly to Y2K - businesses were well prepared for the most part, and so it has been a smoother change than many expected?

An article in the eNewsletter suggests that even 3 years on, there are still what it calls 'knowledge gaps' among staff in many organisations - and worse, that the enforced work-from-home regime has made the problem potentially far worse, while making it harder to see. As Mike Cluskey of Go Shred comments in the article: "Working from home demands a different security standard than being in the office, especially when it comes to data security and disposing of confidential information. Although remote working has become the norm for many people, it is still daunting for both employers and home workers to think about GDPR compliance which requires businesses to keep all personal data private and secure."

Managers need to look at their existing compliance practices - online and offline - and consider whether they are still working for a remote workforce.
