Risk Alert - GDPR Directors Liability

Risk Alert - GDPR Directors Liability

Already under attack from several directions, including ever more stringent regulatory compliance and the threat of shareholder activism, the last thing that UK company directors want to hear in the present environment is that such pressure is increasing.

The GDPR introduces a duty on all organisations to report certain types of personal data breach to the relevant supervisory authority. You must do this within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach, where feasible. If the breach is likely to result in a high risk of adversely affecting individuals' rights and freedoms, you must also inform those individuals without undue delay.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) – Update for Towergate customers


During the COVID-19 Coronavirus crisis, we want to reassure our customers and partners that we are following UK Government guidance,
and as a result our national offices are closed to both safeguard the health of our employees and our ability to look after our valued clients.
Where possible, our employees are working from home and we are still fully able to support with renewals, new cover requirements and
claims guidance and support. This includes giving our colleagues the ability to work from home or alternative locations,
which we hope will limit the disruption and enable you to speak to us for advice and support should you need it.
