Introducing our GDPR Assessment Service
What is GDPR?
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and it is a new law that will replaces the EU’s existing data protection and privacy regulation. It was agreed in April 2016 and will come into force in May 2018.
The UK’s decision to leave the EU will not affect the commencement of the GDPR. After the UK leaves the European Union the GDPR will still be in effect and organisations are still at risk of a penalty if they do not comply.
The GDPR will apply to all companies that process personal data of European Union (EU) citizens. Individuals will be able to receive a copy of their data and have the power to have it erased from the records of an organisation. If an individual wishes to be contacted by an organisation, they need to explicitly agree to be contacted.

Why should I be interested?
Data security is a complex area. There are many types of risk to identify and consider—ranging from physical intrusion or rogue employees to accidental loss or hackers. Building risk management plans and taking risk mitigation steps, such as password protection, audit logs, and encryption, can help you ensure compliance.
If your organisation isn’t GDPR compliant by May 2018, you could face penalties. Stay ahead of the curve and get all of your processes and governance in place in plenty of time.
