Countdown to GDPR
New GDPR Assessment Service Available
We are delighted to launch our GDPR Assessment service to the SME market this month. Getting a handle on exactly what’s needed to meet GDPR compliance for small businesses can seem complicated and time consuming.
We use a Lean Six Sigma framework to organise the GDPR Assessment into manageable sections.
Check out more information on the benefits of the GDPR Assessment.
What exactly is is the GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new regulation that applies to all organisations, regardless of size and so that includes Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
It is in ways similar to the current Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003 (the Acts), so if your business is compliant today, then much should remain the same under the GDPR – but of course there are changes too!
The GDPR introduces new requirements and amendments that mean you will need to look in detail at how your business collects and manages people’s personal data.
What next steps can you take as an Irish SME?
Get ahead of the game – according to the ISME 70% of their members have not identified steps/actions that will need to take place to be GDPR compliant.
Use the resources of the Data Protection Commisioner to get detailed information on GDPR. Then carry out your review and put your Action Plan in place – ready for May 25th.
