The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - protect your reputation and stand out for the right reasons

On 25th May 2018 the GDPR comes into force, so the next year represents a major opportunity to transform your approach to privacy, harness the value of your data, and ensure your organisation is fit for the digital economy.

Although not all organisations will be compliant by May 2018, the regulator will need to see that robust plans are in place.  

Take a risk-based approach: how can we help you

By focussing on your data privacy culture, access governance and protecting yourself from data breaches you are more likely to achieve clear, comprehensive oversight and control of the risks and opportunities that the GDPR will bring.  

Your data privacy culture: your people are your first line of defence to protect your organisation's data

Employee behavior is critical to the success of GDPR. Employees interact with data at many different stages of the data cycle; from collecting data through to processing, securing and deleting data. You need to help employees understand their role and responsibilities in these activities and help them develop the right data behaviours. These behaviours need to be embedded in organisational rituals and routines; they will then become the norm and second nature to everyone in the organisation. Contact our data privacy culture expert.
