If you are finding the challenge of GDPR compliance rather overwhelming then don’t panic – our GDPR Workshops are here to help!
We have put together a comprehensive training package on GDPR, compliance, and data protection’s impact on businesses, which is now available to all of our clients:
The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR”) come into effect on 25th May 2018 for all business in the EU member states, as well as any company offering, goods, services or marketing to EU citizens. While the UK will be leaving the EU in 2019, the regulations will be mandatory well before then and will be written into UK law on Brexit so all UK businesses must comply.
GDPR introduces new obligations for any company that handles the personal data of EU citizens. As a result you will soon be required to build data protection into your business processes by “design and default” rather than as an afterthought.
Breaching the new regulations could have a significant financial impact on your business if you stick your head in the sand. Fines for severe non-compliance can be up to the greater of 4% of global turnover or EUR20m. Importantly, it is expected that fines will be reduced if a company can show that they have made a genuine effort to protect data.
There are many companies in the market spreading fear about GDPR in an attempt to panic you into buying their consultancy and training services. At Backhouse Solicitors we believe in doing things properly, and suggest you:
By planning properly you will avoid duplication of effort or missing important steps and will be able to demonstrate to the regulators that you have thought about the rules and made a proper effort to comply.
With limited time remaining before the GDPR deadline, now is the time to get started with your planning. Ask yourself the following questions to help you understand how compliant your business is with GDPR rules:
