Data privacy data protection and GDPR
Following the recent introduction of GDPR and the UK Data Protection Act 2018, it has never been so vital for businesses based in or operating in the UK to make sure they are totally compliant with the new data protection regulations, not least because of the potential fines non-compliance may trigger.
Our commercial team can provide you with practical, easy to understand advice on the latest data protection requirements and what you need to do. We can talk you through everything from data retention and data transfers to the handling of sensitive information (internally and externally) and e-marketing best practice.
The first step is to find out exactly how your business could be affected by GDPR and identify where you might be most vulnerable. From there we will work closely with you to make sure you are totally compliant with the current data protection and privacy laws in accordance with the type of business you are and with what suits your business best.
The areas we can help you with include:
- ICO registration
- Data mapping guidance and tools
- Data protection impact assessment guidance and tools
- Privacy notices
- Data sharing agreements
- International data transfers
- E-marketing requirements and best practice
- The GDPR standard of consent and when this is needed
- GDPR requirements for commercial contracts
- How to meet the required standards as an employer
Our GDPR experts can also work with you to complete any data protection due diligence a corporate transaction and/or outsourcing arrangements may demand.
