The Challenge of the GDPR
Due to the widely different data protection regulations within EU countries, the EU Commission has developed a new extensive directive on the storing of the data on EU citizens. GDPR clarifies and expands upon the requirements outlined in the UK Data Protection Act 1998. GDPR also introduces far tougher penalties for companies that infringe its regulations. Its estimated to have a profound impact on the business world and thus it’s important to be prepared.
Our approach to GDPR compliancy
Many believe that the GDPR is just an IT issue, however, almost all departments within a business will store personal data. So, our view is that stakeholders from across your organization need to be made aware of the GDPR and how it will affect them. This differs from many other GDPR Consultancies who will charge you large sums of money to make sure the IT networks are secure, but without considering all the other personal data that a business stores. Including physical files.
