Developing your GDPR compliance plan

Developing your GDPR compliance plan


As you will know, from May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 will mean significant changes in data privacy regulation. The regulation impacts businesses of all sizes who deal with data – whether you are a small or medium sized business (including start-ups) in both the public and private sector.

We have been working closely with a range of clients to advise on compliance strategies and risk. Some of the main challenges and queries we are seeing in the run up to implementation include:

  • Do I need explicit consent to process personal data? how can I legitimise what I am doing with sensitive personal data without consent?
  • Do existing contract terms require updating? What's the most practical way to update my contract terms?
  • How do I share data with other organisations? How do I deal with data from and to third parties?
  • What's the most effective implementation plan? I have limited resources: what's the minimum I need to do to be GDPR compliant?
  • How do I engage in direct marketing with customers and potential customers?
