Data protection law has changed. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU).
Any company, big or small, will need to be aware of the new regulations regarding the secure collection, storage and usage of personal information and how they relate to their business. But the good news is that the GDPR recognises that smaller businesses require different treatment to large or public enterprises.
Read our GDPR Guide to help you get your head around all of the updates made.
We have also compiled a list of some useful links from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) for you to look at.
While this is not an exhaustive list, the aim is to point you in the right direction:
- Head to the ICO for their guide to GDPR which goes into depth providing useful information. It’s not short, but it is helpful!
- Check whether you need to register with the Information Commissioners Office (ICO)
- If you’ve had enough reading, watch their video which leads you through their 8 steps you should undertake to meet GDPR guidelines.
- This document is particularly useful if you’re unsure about the use of cameras.
We have been informed by DVSA that the ICO will be updating their own information and FAQs to include specific guidance for ADIs, so keep your eyes peeled for this in due course.
