Understanding the impacts of data protection regulation on your business
Over the past few years, data protection has assumed a key role in how you set up and run your business systems and processes. Current legislation in the form of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the UK’s equivalent Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018), empower the individual as data subject to demand that their personal information is handled at higher levels of accessibility and transparency than ever before. This means closer scrutiny of how paper records are handled, as well as managing all the digital data held on computers, laptops, servers and mobile devices, are both top priorities for any business.
