GDPR Compliance Services
GDPR is a new regulation that will come into force (law) in the UK next year, May 2018. It is a significant and serious update (replacement) for the current Data Protection Act and the penalties that can be imposed for contravening the regulation are formidable.
The principle drivers for GDPR are Individual Privacy and Unity around a common approach to data integrity and protection. GDPR is a comprehensive change to current legislation and covers all aspect of individual privacy, including key issues such as: Consent, Controlling and Processing Data, a Right to be Forgotten, Data Breaches and the requirement in some cases for the appointment of a Data Protection Officer.
What do you need to do?
Firstly, please do not ignore it. It’s not just for large Businesses. It doesn’t just relate to Consumers. It is Brexit-proof, as already confirmed by the UK Government. It will affect all Businesses controlling or processing data relating to (not necessarily within) the European Union.
The governing body in the UK (the Information Commissioners Office) is already very active in enforcing penalties against the current legislation. The Information Commissioner (Elizabeth Denham) has consistently expressed the need for positive change around data and individual privacy – and has promised to lead this change throughout the UK with GDPR i.e. will not hesitate to take punitive action where necessary.
