Don't lose Office 365 emails!

GDPR is about paper records as well as digital

In a previous post we looked at Data Protection and the forthcoming General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). However, we didn't make it clear that the regulations don't just apply to digital data stored on your IT systems and network but also apply to paper records too.
