Is Your Business Ready for the General Data Protection Regulation?
Do you collect data to upload to your database? Do you collect business cards? Do you prospect on Social Media? Do you outsource to third party suppliers? Do you collect employee data? Are you a recruiter collecting candidate data? Are you a travel agency collecting customer data? Do you sell lists? Do you collect sensitive patient data? If you are in education do you collect data relating to children?
If the answer is YES, you could be in breach of the new regulation when it comes into force on 25th May 2018 resulting in fines of up to £17 million or 4 x your annual global turnover!
A rigorous overhaul of your current practises is needed now to ensure compliance and the avoidance of penalties and fines.
