GDPR Assessments and Guidance

Is your business ready for the May 2018 changes to consumer data protection?

Data protection and cyber security laws in the EU are changing. On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force, changing the way that marketers and organisations can handle personal data.

Failure to comply with these laws could lead to a fine of up to €20 million (£17 million), or 4% of your global turnover (whichever is greater).

The need to modernise will affect many of the ways that you approach data management, including:

  • Obtaining explicit consent for marketing
  • Using profiling
  • Fulfilling requests for information (Data Subject Access Requests)
  • The right to be forgotten and the erasure of data

To help you identify the areas you need to work on before 2018, Blue Sheep have teamed up with data compliance specialists to provide a two-step GDPR Assessment and Process Review.

The GDPR Assessment will provide your organisation with a full diagnosis of your marketing database and processes to enable you to take the action you need to ensure you will be compliant come 2018.

Will the UK still be affected by GDPR after it leaves the EU?

Although the wheels are now in motion for Brexit, this will not significantly alter the need for UK organisations to comply to the General Data Protection Regulation for several reasons:

  • The UK will still be a member of the EU in May 2018, so will still be required to adhere to EU law.
  • UK organisation that wish to trade with Europe and handle the data of EU citizens will need to comply with the data protection laws surrounding the use of their personal data.
  • The Government has confirmed that, once the UK has left the EU, it will implement comparable legislation to ensure an "unhindered exchange of data" between the UK and the EU.
