Are you feeling overwhelmed when it comes to GDPR?
Are you unsure what you need to have in place to be fully compliant with the law?
Since the General Data Protection Regulations were introduced (and for many months before!), I’ve been working with business owners to provide clarity and help with what they need to do to be fully compliant with the new law.
I was confused when I first heard about GDPR and what it meant for a small business owner like myself, and I was terrified when I saw so many business owners burying their heads in the sand rather than putting into place the processes and systems necessary to be GDPR compliant. So, I undertook some training and learned everything I needed to know so I could ensure my own business was completely compliant and be able to help other businesses be compliant too.
With my partners at Koffeeklatch, I’m able to provide you with GDPR friendly policies and contracts to keep your business the right side of data protection regulations.
What is GDPR?
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and is essentially an update the current Data Protection Act (DPA) which is now 20 years old.
You can find out more about GDPR on the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) website.
My GDPR preparation service is designed to help you understand the data that you hold, how it’s collected and stored, who can access it and whether you need to review the consent you have for the data you collect. I’ll do this by:
- Evaluating the data you have
- Identifying where that data is held – both physically on devices and in the cloud by providing you with a single document confirming data locations and security details for the systems you use (where these are available)
- Reviewing your trail of consent
This gives me the information I need to create a document that maps this out and how you can use this data to inform your policies and procedures moving forward.
I have been working with Sarah to make sure that my small company is GDPR compliant, and I can honestly say that I couldn’t have done it without her! She was extremely helpful, professional, detailed, always available, and very knowledgeable. Working through all the GDPR requirements on my own was a bit overwhelming, Sarah on the other hand made everything very clear to understand. I needed someone to take the reins and walk me through everything I needed to do for GDPR, and Sarah did just that – she is amazing! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for GDPR help.
