GDPR - developing best practice for obtaining consent

Following implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on May 25th, the UK entered a new age of data protection. Every business should have been fully prepared for the transition and as a result, had embedded the systems, policies and processes required to comply with the new regulation.

However, GDPR is not a process which you can complete; there is no finish line. It is an ongoing responsibility to maintain a data protection culture which meets regulatory obligations. One area which gives businesses concern is that of consent.

• What is consent?
• The relevance of consent for the general insurance sector.
• Best practice for obtaining consent.
