75 percent UK law firms unprepared for GDPR

According to a study constituted by CenturyLink Emea, nearly 75 percent of law firms in the United Kingdom are not ready for General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). With just six months to go before the compliance deadline of 25 May 2018, a majority of the law firms are not ready to be fully compliant with the legislation. Here, the fine for non-compliance and failings to protect data under the GDPR is up to €20 million or four percent of annual global turnover.
