As we’re sure you’re aware, the deadline for the most important change to data privacy regulations in 20 years is coming up on the 25th of May, and while we’re all aware that we need to be compliant, it can be tricky deciphering the changes, and implementing them to our own businesses.
Web Adept have de-bunked the jargon, and have created a GDPR Compliance Check that systematically checks your website and its data collection, storage and distribution to make sure that you won’t get fined once the deadline passes – no more “grace periods”, we all need to be ready!
So how is GDPR different from the current regulations? We now create and collate a huge amount of digital information online each day which collects intelligence about almost everything we do, from our personal data on social media to shopping habits, lifestyle choices, even the music we listen to and our favourite place to go on holiday. Digital technology and digital applications have moved on hugely since the Data Protection Act of 1998, meaning that current laws aren’t fit for purpose any more. The new rules will be much stricter than the outdated Act, enforcing enhanced security measures and rights around personal and sensitive data.
At Web Adept, we’ve created a GDPR Compliance Check that takes the stress out of any potential situations by creating a checklist that we can use to inspect your website for any current snags. For only £30 + VAT, we can work through your site and supply you with a report of any changes that you will need to make in order to comply. (Please note that if you are currently signed up to a monthly Service Level Agreement with us, your GDPR Compliance Check is FREE).
So don’t leave it to the last minute – contact us today to get your ducks in a row!
Please note that this check is on the digital element of your company. For full information regarding the compliance of your everyday business operations, please see the ICO regulations online: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/
