» The GDPR Specialist
The GDPR Specialist provides straight-forward, uncomplicated guidance for your business on the General Data Protection Regulations.
The biggest shake-up of EU data protection laws for a generation will see the new EU GDPR law coming into force from May 2018. Irrespective of Brexit, the GDPR will replace the EU’s current data protection laws, including the UK’s Data Protection Act. It affects all businesses processing personal data of EU citizens and applies to existing and new data. With extended rights for data subjects and hefty fines for non-compliance of up to 4% of global turnover or €20,000,000 (whichever is the greater) it is essential that businesses prepare now to ensure that they are ready before the GDPR comes into force.
As a certified GDPR Practitioner, some of the things we can help you with include:
- Providing you with the tools to carry out a data audit to determine what personal data your business holds and how it is used;
- Providing advice and drafting the appropriate data protection policies and processes for your business (such as Privacy Notices, processes and requirements for data subject consent) to meet GDPR standards;
- Assisting you to evaluate whether your data processing practices qualify as high risk;
- Identifying and implementing the appropriate mechanisms for international data transfers;
- Supporting you in undertaking Data Protection Impact Assessments where required;
- Determining whether your organisation is required to appoint a dedicated Data Protection Officer;
