GDPR

(GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION)

GDPR – compliance isn’t optional

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on
25 May 2018, following four-and-a-half years in the making.

If you’re compliant, you have ongoing obligations.
If you’re not compliant, it’s never too late to act.
Either way, you’ve come to the right place with Xynics.

A core principle of GDPR is to ensure that organisations have a legitimate, lawful reason for processing the data, and that doing so respects the individual’s rights.

WHY HAS GDPR BEEN IMPLEMENTED?

In the last decade there has been an explosion in the way that organisations collect and use data. Almost everything an individual does now is tracked and logged in data, and much of it is directly attributable to that individual.

HOW DOES THIS AFFECT BUSINESSES?

For businesses that are already in compliance with the GDPR and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003, there is very little change at all. Every business is different and how you comply will vary however all businesses will need to keep detailed logs and records on why, how and when data is collected or used, and fully document in policies and procedures.

Actually, did you know that along with the GDPR, a new Data Protection Act 2018 also came into effect on the 25th May?  This new DPA, enhances upon the requirements of the GDPR in some areas that will likely be relevant to all businesses!
