Keeping You Compliant


What is GDPR?

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a Pan-European piece of legislation implemented by the European Parliament and Council to significantly strengthen a data subject's (persons) rights in regards to how their data is used. GDPR applies to two kinds of data (1) personal data and (2) sensitive data.

In order to ensure all organisations entrusted with personal and sensitive data of data subjects follow strict processes, defined principles have been applied to the Regulations which must be followed.

These principles are that data must be:

  • Processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner.
  • Collected, for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes.
  • Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary.
  • Accurate, and, where necessary, kept up to date.
  • Retained, only as long as necessary.
  • Processed securely, in an appropriate manner to maintain security.

In addition to this, every data subject has the following rights which must be upheld when processing their personal data.

 

Data subjects have:

  • The right to be informed
  • The right of access
  • The right to rectification
  • The right to erasure
  • The right to restrict processing
  • The right of data portability
  • The right to object
  • Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling

Any breach of these can result in serious fines and penalties. Naturally it is in the interests of all businesses to comply with all GDPR legislation. Implementing these regulations does not have to be daunting or onerous. Indeed, our understanding of all relevant legislation means we can help you in changing processes and systems in a realistic and workable way.
