What do I need to know?

There’s been a lot of fear mongering around GDPR, so first things first relax.
In essence our Governments are looking to better secure our personal data, and as such GDPR and the UK’s new revised DPA laws will look to enforce certain standards of security and reporting on data loss.
GDPR will significantly alter the way businesses handle and store data.
At over 200 pages long, the regulation consolidates and replaces the many local data protection laws such as the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998, the Belgian Privacywet, or the German Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG).
The main differences lie in the severity of the potential fines and new requirements such as breach notification, right to access, right to be forgotten, and so forth.
The primary objective of GDPR is to strengthen security and privacy protection for individuals. While GDPR shares many principles from its predecessors, it does however consist of 11 chapters, 99 articles, and 187 recitals.

Getting ready

To get your business ready you need a plan of attack and that is where your I.T. supplier should help along with HR and possibly a solicitor.

For our clients we perform network security checks to find potential holes and also look at the data they hold and how we can best secure that data. GDPR also covers portability of data (someone requesting the data you hold on them to be passed to them), Erasure (the deletion of data you hold on an individual) and reporting on any breaches within an allotted time period.

We can work with you or your DPO to make sure that you’re compliant with all the new rules of GDPR and the UK’s DPA.
