We can help you to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation
The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became law on 25 May 2018 and all businesses who hold data relating to EU citizens need to ensure that they comply. Failure to do so could result in fines of up to 4% of annual global company turnover or €20 million, whichever is greater.
The GDPR seeks to give people more control over how organisations use their data and expands the rights of individuals to control how their personal information is collected and processed and places a range of new obligations on organisations to be more accountable for data protection.
Understanding what you need to do to become compliant can seem daunting. While many of the GDPR’s requirements are much the same as those in the current Data Protection Act (DPA), there are some significant additional responsibilities. The good news is that if you’re complying with the DPA, you have a sound basis on which to build on toward GDPR compliance.
While the following requirements may seem burdensome and complex, our Consultancy Services team can help you. From the initial in-depth assessment into the data you hold, how and where it’s used within your own business and how it may be shared with third parties, penetration testing to identify vulnerabilities in your infrastructure, to developing and implementing a full GDPR Compliance Action Plan, we can support you.
