Data protection laws are changing. Let us help you get ready.
So what is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an important new piece of legislation that brings greater strength and consistency to data protection. GDPR also aims to ease the regulatory environment for international trade by offering a uniform regulation throughout the EU.
These strict rules demand that all companies adhere to the processes and procedures while collecting and storing personal data.
THE GDPR will come into effect on 25th May 2018, and UK Government has stated organisations based in the UK will need to comply with the legislation.
Does this apply to your business?
The answer is most likely yes! Most businesses and organisations hold personal data that must be protected under the upcoming GDPR legislation. Examples include employee payslips, customer contact details, HR records and emails.
What will happen?
While the legislation will not come into force till May, it is important to ensure that you are prepared! Organisations will be expected to comply immediately, and a protected workplace is vital.
Take action in advance to ensure that your business will be ready to meet requirements of the forthcoming laws, so your business is protected against any potentially damaging data breaches or penalties.
