GDPR Consultancy Services
The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is both complex and far-reaching. A significant obligation placed on organisations is one of ‘Accountability’ which means if companies cannot demonstrate and evidence that they are processing data and information in a way that is fair, lawful and transparent according to the data protection legislation, this will present a significant risk to all organisations in terms of potentially high financial penalties and reputational damage.
GDPR compliance is crucially important for businesses
Keeping up with GDPR requirements can be quite
a task for a business. With so many legal obligations and data protection rules
to follow, it can be difficult to check you’re keeping up with the right
protocol. To help make the transition easier, we offer GDPR consultancy
services for businesses just like yours.
The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has updated how we are able to collect and share personal data.
In order to comply with these changes, many businesses have already made
changes to the way their processes are managed. However, some changes can be
difficult to implement without the right help.
What is Personal Data?
Personal data includes obvious information such as names, addresses, email address and so on but also extends to information such as online identifiers, photographs and location data to reflect changes in technology. The definition covers any information that can identify an individual, directly or indirectly.
GDPR has 7 principles to be met in order to correctly process personal data in compliance with the law:
Processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner
Collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes
Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary
Accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date
Kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed
Processed using appropriate technical or organisational measures
Accountability; being responsible for compliance with other principles

data protection officer (dpo)

Many businesses are, under GDPR, required to appoint someone as their Data Protection Officer.
