GDPR Conference Europe: GDPR Sprint is dedicated to preparing SMEs for the biggest change in data protection in a generation and has designed an agenda which will equip businesses with necessary tools and knowledge to aid their compliance. 

Data collected by the Federation of Small Businesses suggests that a third of small businesses haven’t even begun preparing for GDPR.

This, however, shouldn't be cause for panic, GDPR should be seen as a journey and not a destination - if you can demonstrate you are putting the processes in place to comply this will go a long way.
