With the arrival of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018, it has never been more important to ensure that you have good data protection policies and processes in place. You also need to have an understanding of what data protection is all about as the policies alone will not be enough to make your organisation compliant with the legislation.
Add in some other pieces of legislation such as the Privacy and Electronic Communication Regulation (PECR), some industry-specific laws in some cases, and an ever more educated and wary public and it becomes clear that to be a successful business, you need to comply with the legal requirements and also adopt the spirit of protecting people's personal information.
There is a lot of information available on the subject, including some great information from the Information Commissioner's Office (the UK regulator), but it isn't always easy to make sense of it in terms of your own business.
This is where we can help. We have over 30 years of experience in a variety of business sectors and can help you to find the best way to comply with the laws and the spirit of data protection, making your business stand out from the ones that don't.
