In recent days there has been a lot of stir in the online community in particular WordPress, to do with the new GDPR privacy law which is coming into affect on the 25th of May 2018. Owners of WordPress websites are urged to take action to be compliant before this date.
So what exactly do you need to do to make my WordPress compliant with the new GDPR laws?
- Ensure that your WordPress has been updated to the latest version, which has some new functions built in to support the recent changes in the law.
- Where possible, email all your existing users and give them the opportunity to opt out from any further marketing emails.
Additionally, there is a document that has been prepared by ICO (information commissioners office) which has an easy to follow 12 step guide which you can download a copy of from HERE.
