For many small businesses, organisations, clubs, artists, faith groups, voluntary organisations/charities and sole traders, applying the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been like playing a game of "Snakes and Ladders". As soon as you move along the board and climb a ladder, a snake appears, which takes you right back to where you started. Conflicting advice abounds and there is nowhere for these individuals to go for simple answers all in one place. With the threat of fines seeming around every corner, now more than ever is the time for smaller organisations to get to grips with GDPR so that they can demonstrate their compliance.

GDPR: A Game of Snakes and Ladders is an easy to read reference tool, which uses simple language in bite size easily signposted chapters. Adopting a no-nonsense approach, the Regulation is explained so that organisations can comply with the minimum of fuss and deliver this compliance in the shortest timeframe without the need to resort to expensive consultants or additional staff. The book is supported by a variety of easy to follow case studies, example documents and fact sheets. The author signposts warnings and important requirements (snakes) and hints and suggestions (ladders) and also provides a section on staff training and a Game of Snakes and Ladders training slide pack. Additional resources are available on the companion website.

This user-friendly book, written by a Data Protection Officer and business management specialist will help you understand the Regulation, where it applies in your organisation and how to achieve compliance (and win at the compliance game).
