In this month's audio newsletter we're in Saltcoats at a Family Business Solutions Event, speaking to family businesses looking for help and advice from Wright Johnston & Mackenzie consultants. We'll also hear from WJM's Stephen Grant on changes to Data Protection regulations that all businesses need to get ready for; and we'll hear from WJM's Gillian Cowie on how the UK's regulations are gearing up for a digital future with the new Digital Economy Act.
Wright Johnstone and Mackenzie have a dedicated consulting arm specialising in helping family businesses prosper and grow. In this feature, we hear from FBS's Billy Andrew on why an external consultant can be as indispensable to a family business as an accountant or lawyer.
The UK Digital Economy Act, which includes a new Electronics Communication Code, came into effect in April 2017. The code is intended to provide regulation that will fully support the rollout of a digital communications infrastructure across the UK. Wright Johnston & Mackenzie has vast experience in this sector and in this feature we'll hear more about the new code from Partner Gillian Cowie.
On 25th May 2018, a European directive called the General Data Protection Regulation will come into force, replacing existing regulation across the EU. Businesses need time to prepare for the changes the GDPR will bring and they need to be looking at this now, if they’re not already doing so. Stephen Grant explains more.
