GDPR represents a step change in how organisations deal with personal data. With the advent of the internet and social media, we have all become accustomed to sharing our personal data with companies, sometimes without being clear how it is being collected and how it is being used.
On May 25th, however, the power balance shifts back towards individuals. GDPR’s primary aim is to give control to individuals over their personal data. The GDPR applies to all organisations, associations and public bodies which process personal data. It imposes a number of obligations on these bodies to ensure they protect personal data and individual privacy rights.
Getting Concern to a point of compliance has been, and will continue to be a lot of work for us. We will be communicating to you in the coming days on the work we have been doing and the changes we are putting in place in how we process personal data. Take some time to read this material and understand what GDPR means for you!
