GDPR – no need to panic!

Does the mere mention of GDPR make you feel slightly queasy? Maybe you’re not quite sure what GDPR is but you’re just sick of all the emails you’ve been getting over the past couple of weeks? Well….GDPR is here and it’s important that all organisations….large and small, public, private and not-for-profit…are aware of it and are working towards the requirements.

What is GDPR?

It’s a new, wide-ranging piece of data protection legislation which comes into force today.

Here’s one of our previous blogs, which gives you some more information.

I’ve not done anything…what do I need to do for my organisation?

The ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office), who will enforce the new law, have said that they’ll work with organisations, especially smaller ones, to ensure they are meeting the new requirements.

They are not expecting everyone to be compliant from today but it’s important that all organisations (including churches and charities) have a clear plan which they are working towards.

I need help!

Contact us and we’ll work with you to audit the personal information you hold now and build a plan of action to ensure you comply with the new legislation. This is part of our wider workstream on HR Policies. We can work with you to ensure that you have everything in place to be legally compliant. Our HR Health Check will identify what needs to be put in place to get you there!
