GDPR catch-up

July 18, 2019

The regulations have now been in place for more than 12 months, since 25th May 2018.  They require companies to record the personal data they collect, store and use and why in respect of their employees.  Companies must be able to justify what they are doing and only hold the personal data for as long as necessary.  

Employees are now much more aware and will question if they feel their personal data is being misused.  While high profile data breaches in the news concern large companies such as British Airways, Facebook and Google, the limited resources and lack of direct guidance for small businesses makes compliance much more difficult, and many are still unprepared.  If you would like to discuss the requirements of GDPR or would like advice and/or documentation in order to comply, please contact Sheryl Sur.
