Are you ready for the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that will apply to all businesses in the UK from the 25th May 2018? Contact us for more information an to find out about our GDPR readiness toolkit.
The updated regulations will requires organisations to develop clear policies and procedures to protect personal data. This will mean reviewing your existing procedures and practices and updating them accordingly, ensuring you are able to demonstrate how personal data is handled and protected within your organisation.
Another key change in the regulation is the severity of penalties that may be imposed if organisations are found to be in breach of the regulations. These fines could be up to 4% of annual global turnover or £20 million – whichever is greater.
At IT Foundations we understand that this may be an additional burden to you or your business. That’s why we are working hard to train our staff and develop our GDPR toolkit. We want to support you and make sure you are ready for the changes in regulation. In the meantime if you would like further information get in touch and we’ll arrange an appointment with one of our consultants.
