For the last few years, the construction sector has been high on the Government’s agenda, particularly around the subjects of fire and building safety. Recently thrown into sharper focus through the publication of the Hackitt Report and industry reaction, 2020 has seen an assertive drive towards the establishment of new laws and a dedicated regulator to improve building safety. Importantly, the new legislation will also act as a much-needed catalyst in the move to digital transformation, which has started to stagnate following an initial flurry of activity, writes Richard Waterhouse, Chief Strategy Officer at NBS.

With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) just around the corner, businesses must be proactive in preparing for the new regulation, which comes into effect next May, says Paula Tighe, Information Governance Director at UK-leading law firm Wright Hassall.
