Pick up a copy of the Daily Mirror today and read our account exec, Laura's, interview about how she came to work in insurance. It's full of useful career advice, too, so perfect if you're hunting for a new role.

Do you collect customer data? 

If so, you should be aware that the Data Protection Act 1998 is changing. Soon one set of rules will apply across the EU, meaning businesses will not need to deal with member states’ varying rules. 

Here’s what you need to know about the latest regulation changes to data protection. Plus top tips for compliance.

Usually  #TheFreelanceWay  is all about helping other freelancers. 
This afternoon, though, we're going to be doing something a bit different. We want to help the next generation of freelancers: students who are graduating now and taking the next steps in their career. 
That's why we want to know:
what advice would you give recent graduates thinking of going freelance? 
Or non-graduates for that matter. 
To get involved, tweet us between 2-4 pm this afternoon, using #TheFreelanceWay.

We're feeling charitable. 
If you're a trustee of a charity, check out this little article we've put together about protecting yourself. Trustees can be personally liable for their charities' wrongdoing: that's a scary thought.

It's the time of year when businesses up and down the country are taking in students and interns for a summer of work experience. 
If you don't usually have any employees, however, you might not have the right insurance to protect your business. Any extra helpers are your responsibility, and you could be liable if they're injured or become ill because of their work.
Time to consider employers' liability insurance...

We have a new post on the School of Risk:
Does my business need employers' liability insurance for freelancers? 
It's a question we're asked a lot on Live Chat, so this could be a valuable resource for anyone who's ever wondered what their obligations are regarding freelancers...
