The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect from 25 May 2018 and presents a further burden and risk for small and medium-sized businesses and organisations, including sports and leisure clubs, charities and trusts, as well as commercial agencies.
The Information Commissioner’s Office is an excellent source of information covering all aspects of the regulation and has issued a useful 'Preparing for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – 12 steps to take now' guide that we recommend all our clients and customers consider.
Despite the complexity and abundance of information available, much of it may not be relevant to your organisation and a lot of resource may be needlessly allocated to unravelling the guidelines and potentially setting up burdensome or unnecessary procedures or systems.
Alternatively, your assessment may reveal some fundamental flaws and the need for some fast footwork to get up to speed.
To assist you in this, Benesse UK offers a one day package to review and report on the implications as they might apply to your company.
Similarly, we can provide a one day training course to bring all of your key employees up to speed on the changes and how they will impact your organisation and the steps to be taken.
For a free assessment and conversation on how GDPR might affect your organisation, call our consultants or drop us an email and we will respond within 4 hours.
