What is GDPR?
GDPR is a new set of data protection regulations that now apply to every company across the whole of Europe. If you collect, store, or process any data about anybody then you need to be compliant with these new rules. GDPR went live at the end of May and are now part of UK law – the Information Commissioners Office is responsible for enforcement and based on previous action under the old Data Protection Act the ICO will be a fierce regulator.
Does it apply to me?
GDPR applies to every company that processes data about people. This includes customers, employees, contractors, suppliers, and anyone else! It is pretty unlikely that you do not process so you should assume that GDPR applies to you.
What does GDPR mean?
GDPR is all about data and protecting the rights of the person [data subject]. Everyone has rights under GDPR including the right to know what data you hold and the right to be deleted. You also need a lawful basis to process their data when you collect it. These are important rights and fundamental to GDPR, so you need to make sure you understand how they apply to you and make sure you have processes in place to deal with them.
What do I have to do?
How much will this cost?
