Hardly a week goes by without headlines of lost laptops and memory sticks containing confidential staff and customer data. Are you aware of the rules protecting your employees’ personal data?
Data Protection legislation places obligations on your business to protect the confidential information you hold about your employees and customers. Failing to comply with these obligations can lead to substantial fines from the Information Commissioner. And, with the introduction of the new European Union General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), it is now more important than ever to ensure that your business is compliant.
At Backhouse Solicitors we can advise you on how to stay compliant, including how to respond to a Subject Access Request from a customer or employee asking to see the information you hold about them. We can also train your staff on how they should protect your customers’ data.
The benefits for you:
- Following the rules properly helps prevent data breaches and fines
- You avoid adverse publicity and harm to your reputation from data breaches
