Review fair processing notices
Privacy impact assessments
“If you demonstrate that you are ahead of the game, you may find yourself at a competitive advantage over your peers when it comes to tendering for business.”
Am I Exempt?
Being a small buisness doesn’t mean that you fall outside of the scope of GDPR – all companies. regardless of size, have to get on the front foot when it comes to data protection.
It is also worth noting that even if a small business falls within one of these exemptions, if you are contracting with a larger company that doesn’t, you may find yourself having to meet the higher bar of data protection set by the GDPR.
Breaches will have to be reported to the ICO if they are likely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals.
