Our data Savvy Claire will ensure you are compliant not complacent when it comes to GDPR.

We’ve recently sent our new Account Director, Claire Rutherford, on a powerhouse of training to ensure your data is in the safest of hands.

The GDPR or General Data Protection Regulation to give its full name comes into effect EU wide on the 25th May 2018 and regardless of Brexit it is here to stay.

Introduced to keep pace with the modern digital landscape, the GDPR is more extensive in scope and application than the current Data Protection Act (DPA). The Regulation extends the data rights of individuals, and requires organisations to develop clear policies and procedures to protect personal data, and adopt appropriate technical and organisational measures.

Is your business GDPR ready? Do you know your Controllers from your Processors? Do you have a Data Protection Officer? Do you need one? At up to 4% global turnover or €20,000,000 (whichever is greater) penalty fines can you afford not to?

The good news is, Claire has recently become a GDPR qualified adviser and she’s got the certificates to prove it.  Watch this space as we get ready to launch a series of super saavy workshops to help you get ready for the legislative changes in May 2017
