GDPR

What is GDPR?

After over four years of discussion, the new EU data protection framework has finally been adopted. It takes the form of a Regulation – the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR will replace the current Directive and will be directly applicable in all Member States without the need for implementing national legislation. It will not apply until 25 May 2018. However, as it contains some onerous obligations, many of which will take time to prepare for, it will have an immediate impact.

 

GDPR is here now! It will be enforced across Europe in May 2018, this is not affected by Brexit! Organisations must move quickly to implement requirements of the GDPR. CH Digital and live-docs can help, particularly where there is legacy data.

Time is running out

live-docs is set up to comply with the following requirements of the GDPR:-

Right to Rectification live-docs allows for the completion and amendment of personal data, where such data is incorrectly stated
Right to erasure Known as ‘the right to be forgotten’ live-docs enables the deletion of personal data
Right to data portability live-docs enables the data to be transferred in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format.
Subject Access Requests (SAR) With legacy data converted into digital formats, SAR can be satisfied well within the 30 day timescale imposed by GDPR, this will be particularly helpful, given that the £10 charge (which the previous 1998 DPA allowed to help fund SAR) has now been removed!
