Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport goes GDPR

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport has announced that individuals will be able to transfer personal data between service providers to rival social media platforms, which includes account settings, contacts, profile photos and group names.  People will also be permitted to erase personal data held by companies when they turn 18 years old.  Under the Data Protection Act 2018 companies risk being fined up to £17 million and up to 4% of their global turnover if personal data isn’t handled responsibly.

GDPR is becoming a way of life and as an organisation you will need to move with the times to survive.  Whilst GDPR has been seen as ‘a pain’ and sometimes ‘funny’ with the in-box jokes, it won’t be funny if you’re organisation doesn’t keep up.  If you need help with GDPR compliance or just some guidance give us a call.
