GDPR is Coming… Are you ready?

GDPR is Coming… Are you Ready?

As you’re no doubt aware, the Data Protection Act is changing next year to the General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR. 

As of May 2018, all organisations will be required to comply with the GDPR, the new legal framework which seeks to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the EU.

With the introduction of the GDPR comes toughened threats for companies breaching the new regulations, namely the threat of a 4% global turnover fine for series data breaches..!

To put that into context, Talk Talks recent £400,000 fine for it’s data breach could be more like £60,000,000 under the GDPR legislation!

 

Now really is the time to become fully aware of the data that your company is holding, using and storing.

To assist in this onerous task, and to mitigate the risk of a potential fine, Capita has created an Information Asset Register system.

An independent solution to your iTime software, the Information Asset Register provides a central “map” of the data assets your organisation holds and can flag issues such as data that needs to be deleted by a certain date.
Organisations without an Information Asset Register risk fines of 2% for less serious data breaches – a very unwelcome penalty to be hit with.

We’ve put together an overview of the software, download the free brochure here – Capita Information Asset Register
