Ward Williams Group Marketing Manager
HUBB: Business Breakfast: 8th March 2018
Presentation by Eamonn Fogarty – Director of Brookland Computer Services Limited
Brookland is a specialist technology solutions and advisory firm with 20 years’ experience working for regulated clients in the many sectors including Accounting, financial services and legal markets. As well as being a pioneer in fully-managed, secure hosted solutions Brookland offers cutting edge security solutions and solid advice.
On May 25th, the European Union's (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect. A two year ‘sunrise period’ is nearly over and a Bill is going through parliament now to turn GDPR into UK law.
According to a variety of surveys many firms are not ready. This leaves them potentially in for a rude awakening if they mismanage any personal data belonging to a UK or European citizen. Penalties for mishandling user data can reach as high as 4% of an organisation's global annual revenue or 20 million Euros (whichever is greater).
GDPR delivers solid principles to protect the personal data rights of individuals. This relates to all aspects of how their data is handled. The regulation fundamentally changes how we all process and handle client and prospect data. This includes how the data is collected, how and where it is stored, who it is shared with, how it is protected and how communications can be made.
A barrister was recently fined by the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) for unwittingly sending a client file to her personal cloud account while reformatting her laptop. Simple breaches like this are best avoided especially under GDPR. Brookland can point firms in the right direction as well as providing help and support.
