The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most significant change to European data protection law in decades. But GDPR is not just a problem for your IT department.
It is an issue for all businesses and not just IT departments as the GDPR requires organisations to respect and protect personal data – no matter where it is sent, processed or stored. Our approach to GDPR is that IT is not solely responsible. Technology and IT supports the GDPR legislation. However, all departments and staff have a part to play from board level to HR to IT Support teams. Is your business ready for GDPR?

How we can help
There is a tendency to hear GDPR and think it’s just an IT problem and that it’s all to do with security of systems with hackers breaking in and stealing your organisation’s data. However, it extends wider than systems and security.
Internal policies and procedures will be critical to demonstrating compliance in key areas such as risk assessment, implementing privacy by design and data breach notification processes. That is not to say there aren’t technical considerations. New requirements and an individual's rights such as the right to be forgotten, as well as enhanced audit trails, will mean technological changes for local businesses.
