What is GDPR?

The regulations that came into force in May 2018, imposes new and higher enforcement requirements than previously applied to organisations that collect and use customer data. If you collect and use personally identifiable customer data (such as name, email, address and preferences) you need to stay in line with the law.

We recognise that compliance with GDPR can sound daunting – with all those new rules and ongoing processes to be followed. Every business is special so a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work. We will work with you to understand easily and affordably what your company requires, provide legal advice on data protection and decide on a compliance pathway.

There are costly penalties for companies who are not General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant since the 25th May 2018.

The financial penalties for non-compliance are up to €20 million or 4% of global annual turnover – whichever is higher.

Any company that stores or processes personal information about EU citizens within EU states must comply with the GDPR, even if they do not have a business presence within the EU.

And yes, this includes small businesses and the self-employed.

The GDPR audit will identify areas where you are not compliant in your business and the measures you need to take in order to rectify this.
