GDPR & Data Protection
Data protection in recent years has become of paramount importance. With high profile breaches within organisations being very costly, the need to stay on the right side of best practice and policy of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a necessity.
As an employer, if you store or process your employees’ personal data, then you need to make sure you are meeting your responsibilities and are compliant in regards to GDPR. Failing to comply, your organisation could be liable for penalties of up to 4% of turnover or €20 million.
It is not always viable to have an expert to cover every aspect of your business, although with something as important is GDPR, you must follow procedure and go by the book.
