The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) fundamentally changed the way organisations control the data they collect and retain, and for businesses, getting the right advice about GDPR compliance is vital.
At Nath Solicitors, our specialist data protection team can provide you with clear, strategic, targeted advice to help ensure GDPR compliance and you meet your data protection obligations. To find out how we can help your business manage GPDR compliance and data protection responsibilities, contact our team today.
GDPR and the complementary Data Protection Act 2018 established several rights for individuals concerning their data and privacy, which an organisation must respect or face penalties. For example, individuals have the right to access their data, give consent to the gathering and processing of their data, along with a ‘right to be forgotten’. They also have a right to be notified in the event of a compromising data breach.
Although GDPR is EU legislation, it still applies to UK organisations (including post-Brexit). It covers employees’ personal information and personal data relating to customers, suppliers, and data managed for third parties. Understanding and adhering to the complexities of GDPR can be difficult, which is why we are on hand to guide you and help protect your business.
There are seven key principles that businesses must follow:
GDPR compliance in the UK is regulated by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), which has the power to audit compliance with the regulations and issue enforcement notices. Fines of up to €20m or 4% of an organisation’s worldwide annual turnover in the previous financial year, whichever is higher, can apply.
Breaches of GDPR can cause reputational damage and claims by individuals for damages. In addition, certain breaches can result in the criminal prosecution of employees who access personal data unlawfully or their employers who control the data.
The GDPR compliance team at Nath Solicitors can help your organisation achieve compliance in respect of all aspects of GDPR requirements. We can:
