An overview of the key considerations organisations should take on their journey towards compliance.

What should you be doing to be UK GDPR compliant?

It is important to understand the potential impact of the UK General Data Protection Regulations (UK GDPR) have on your organisation. You need advice, you need to audit your business, understand the potential risks and deal with securing the ‘personal data’ you process now. It's time to have a spring clean of all your paperwork and your data.

We have experts who cover all areas of your business that will be impacted by the UK GDPR from both HR and employment law aspects – what your HR teams need to know to handle data loss, what information you need to give to customers and suppliers and whether you need to appoint a data protection officer.

  1. Data protection policy

    The UK GDPR requires organisations to implement appropriate policies and procedures which outline their approach to protecting personal data.

  2. Privacy notices

    Transparency is a key principle of the UK GDPR and requires you to provide data subjects with certain information (privacy notices) about the manner in which you use their personal data.

  3. Data protection impact assessments

    The UK GDPR requires you to conduct a data protection impact assessment if processing is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals.

  4. Document retention

    The UK GDPR provides that personal data should be kept for no longer than necessary. Consideration will need to be given as to how long you need to keep certain information.

  5. Data breaches

    It is now mandatory under the UK GDPR to report certain data breaches within 72 hours. We can help you prepare for breach incidents.

  6. Data subject requests

    An individual’s right to request certain information and action regarding personal data has now been extended under the UK GDPR.

  7. Website

    An organisation’s website is typically an area through which they will process data. Various documentation will therefore need to be in place to ensure that necessary information is provided.

  8. Data processing agreements

    If you use third parties to process personal data on your behalf (e.g. payroll) you will need to have a written agreement in place which contains certain information (as required by the UK GDPR) about how that data will be processed.

  9. Data protection officers

    The UK GDPR requires certain organisations to have a data protection officer. This individual will have certain rights and responsibilities regarding data protection compliance.

  10. Marketing

    The UK GDPR has raised the bar on the level of consent required to enable an organisation to directly market to consumers.

Additional services

Organisations should ensure that relevant staff throughout the business receive appropriate training in order to promote data protection awareness throughout the business.
