GDPR Compliance with Apex Computing

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union data protection law. Effective May 25, 2018, GDPR imposes a wide range of requirements on organizations that collect or process personal data.


The main aim of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is to support consumer rights. It also sets out to provide clarity for businesses by establishing a single law across the EU that we all must adhere to.


The Information Commissioners Office (ICO) provides a very good 12-point guide to everything you need to consider. We would recommend that you go through this document and then look at the infographic we have below to identify your organisation’s needs.


Although some items are IT related, a large proportion of the compliance regulations are regarding the handling of data and internal processes of the organisation. We recommend all customers seek legal advice.


It may seem like an onerous task to carry out, but once you have digested the Information Commissioners Office (ICO)’s report you will have better clarity regarding what is required of you and your organisation. Certain processes are internal, such as appointing a Data Protection Officer (DPO) or documenting your data flows in the organisation & categorising what is high risk and low risk data.  If a breach does occur you will need to demonstrate that you have taken reasonable and sensible steps to prevent it. The ICO want to clamp down on companies that are irresponsible with their customers data.
