Background

GDPR Toolkit

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force in May 2018, in order to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union (EU) and address the export of personal data outside the EU.

Whatever your size, and whichever sector you operate in, this legislation is going to transform the security culture within your business. In order to comply with these new standards, you will have to reassess how you collect, store, process and share personal data.

Preparing for GDPR will be no mean feat. But if done in a logical manner with the correct knowledge, we see GDPR as an enabler to business, helping you streamline processes and boost efficiency, which in turn will have a positive impact on your bottom line.

We’ve got compliance nailed. Our ultra secure facilities offer a superior starting point from which to build your systems and ensure adherence to these strict standards. From internal processes to supply chain management, the technology you use and your security posture, our specialists are on hand to help you achieve auditable compliance and support you on an on-going basis.

Key changes following GDPR:

  • The ‘right to be forgotten’ will help people better manage data protection risks online – people will be able to delete their data if there are no legitimate grounds for retaining it.
  • Data portability – people will be able to transfer personal data from one service provider to another more easily with the aim of improving competition among services.
  • Ease of access to data – people must have easy access to their own data
  • Breach notification – organisations must notify the Data Protection Authority of serious data breaches as soon as possible
  • Data Protection Officer – companies will need to employ a Data Protection Officer (DPO) to act as the principal point for all data protection undertakings
  • Extended accountability – the roles of Data Processor and Data Controller are now bound by the GDPR
