Alliotts has always been serious about protecting your personal data and it is our policy to maintain high levels of security. We welcome the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in giving individuals more control over, and knowledge about, the personal data that organisations hold on them.
We are working hard to make sure that we are ready for when GDPR comes into effect on 25 May this year.
In a nutshell GDPR seeks to protect the data of individuals.
GDPR compliance is not merely lip service. Organisations will need to be able to demonstrate that they comply. This is not a one off exercise, but a change in culture that needs to be adopted by everyone within an organisation, and a series of procedures that will need to be communicated and adhered to.
There are six principles of GDPR, which Alliotts are committed to when dealing with your personal data.
We are making sure our people are aware of their responsibilities when handling personal data and have employed external consultants to assist us with our policies and procedures. As an added safety net we are running, and will continue to run, tests to identify and plug any vulnerable gaps in our systems and procedures.
The safety of your personal data is our priority.
We are co-hosting a seminar for businesses on GDPR in Guildford on 27 March. For more information, or to register, please go to www.alliotts.com/insights/events/the-gdpr-countdown-event/.
