The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25th May 2018 will remain in UK Law following Brexit. The current legislation, Data Protection Act, is out of date and has needed updating following the impact of technological innovations over the last 20 years.
Essentially, the changes will require all organisations to consider how the regulations affect them or whether they do not apply, the latter cannot be assumed and the reasons why demonstrated if required.
We can assist you in getting ready for GDPR and enable you to demonstrate that steps have been taken to follow the regulation.
Our online assessment portal provides a checklist of requirements for Cyber Essentials, IASME, and GDPR. The questions for these three areas when combined will provide you a framework that can be assessed so that a certificate demonstrating compliance with the Cyber Essentials and IASME standards, and GDPR Readiness can be issued.
There will be some very specific actions required such as: - reviewing the consent you hold to use personal data as this may need renewing; making sure you know the personal data you hold and where it is; and having a breach incident plan in place – just in case.
The benefit of our approach is the structured process to dealing with an area that requires action now and can provide business owners and managers with the confidence that they have started the process of getting prepared for a major change in data protection law.
