Are you GDPR Compliant?

  • Posted

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect from May this year. This will become law regardless of Brexit.

All businesses / organisations that hold or process data, no matter their size or purpose, MUST comply with this largest shake up in data regulations in nearly 20 years.

Obligations include:

  • Mapping data and considering the legal basis for processing any personal data held;
  • Updating all data protection policies, procedures and notices to make them GDPR compliant;
  • Reviewing and updating all third party data sharing agreements; and
  • Providing the necessary training to all staff and volunteers.

Additional rules also apply to sensitive personal data that your organisation may hold.

We can help! We can provide data protection audits; policy, procedures and contract reviews, tailored training and ongoing support.

If you would be interested in any of these or would like to attend one of our GDPR lunch time workshops, please let me know.

Our next two dates are Friday, 2nd March and Friday, 9th March and will take place at our Grantham office.
