General Data Protection Regulation

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and your data assets

This is essentially an update to the Data Protection Act and all businesses storing and processing sensitive or personal data will have to comply with it, so that pretty much means all of us. Our Data Protection Officer can advise you on how our processes and services can help you meet your GDPR requirements, and our Service Level Agreement provides a written record of how we will do this.
