Remember GDPR is not a ‘do it once and forget about it’ task but rather an ongoing process that needs to be embedded into ‘Business as usual’.
What do we need to do be GDPR Compliant?
With GDPR, customer information (also staff details etc) is not ‘owned’ by the organisation anymore but is rather lent by individuals and must be used with care. Individuals now have privacy rights and these rights place certain obligations on organisations (which if ignored) can result in significant monetary fines.
To be GDPR compliant your organisation needs to take a structured approach:
- Understand the information that you hold and the risks to which it is exposed.
- Establish measures to protect the personal data and ensure that it is used correctly and lawfully.
- Ensure you can demonstrate how this is achieved, typically by having documented policies (and procedures) and processes that ensure privacy and security is maintained.
