GDPR AND THE CHANGES AHEAD

In just under 6 months the data protection rules here in the UK and across the rest of Europe will undergo a big change.

Since the 1990’s, when data protection rules were created the amount of digital information we create, capture and store has vastly increased.

The solution is General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and this is coming into force on 25th May 2018 and replacing the Data Protection Act 1998.

Preparing for this will be a huge challenge so below we have listed the 12 steps to GDPR compliance as issued by the ICO.

  1. Awareness
  2. Information you hold
  3. Communicating privacy information
  4. Individuals rights
  5. Subject access requests
  6. Lawful basis for processing personal data
  7. Consent
  8. Children
  9. Data breaches
  10. Data protection by design and data protection impact assessments
  11. Data protection officers
  12. International
