The European Union General Data Protection Regulation

The EU GDPR comes into force on 25th May 2018, and will be probably the most powerful piece of data protection legislation in the world.

It applies to any organisation, anywhere in the world, which works with personal information of any EU citizen.

This is a regulation which you need to take seriously. Get it right, and you show your customers that are trustworthy and respect their rights. Get it wrong, and the fines can be significant – up to 4% of your global annual turnover, or €20million.

The IT Service is here to help.

Is GDPR certification worth anything?

In this article, I'd like to tackle the thorny issue of GDPR certification. Let's start by laying the bald facts on the table - there's no such thing as "official certification" for the GDPR. The Information Commissioner's Office haven't set out an official curriculum, paths to certification or accreditation programmes and nor have the European Commission. Nor, in my (long!) searches have I come across anything that I'd describe as [...]

Councils CAN use legitimate interests as lawful basis under GDPR.

Here's why - and what the ICO has to say on the matter As you'll know if you've been taking an interest in GDPR (or, of course the DPA before that), if you're going to process data, it has to be done lawfully. Come to think of it, that also applies if you've not much knowledge of the DPA / GDPR but want to run your business ethically and legally. Not [...]
