Data Protection Policy
An internal document with impact. Define your data protection obligations and educate staff with a data protection policy.
As the digital age evolves, it increasingly becomes a data protection-first world. As a result, companies need to abide by the rules set out in the GDPR. However, that list of rules comprises 261 pages. Yikes. So, how do you keep on top of your data protection obligations? Enter, the data protection policy.
As an internal document, your data protection policy will define how your company tackles data protection, what your employees need to be aware of, and what the business needs to do to achieve squeaky-clean compliance. Similarly, a data protection policy goes a long way towards helping companies meet their legal obligations. Nice.
When a data protection policy is needed
Abiding by GDPR
The UK GDPR (or “General Data Protection Regulations”) sets out a series of rules with the intent of protecting the privacy of individuals. As a company, its highly likely that you’re processing data, whether that’s scooping new emails, or tracking IP addresses. As a result, you’re beholden to the rules of the GDPR.
Building a legal strategy
Failure to comply with data protection rules doesn’t just result in a slap on the wrist. Fines can be in the millions, and your reputation can be tarnished for the long haul. Consumer trust is hard-earned and quickly lost, so it’s important you have processes in place to do right by their data.
Data breach policy
While it’s the last thing anyone wants, data breaches have hit countless companies in recent years. Ensure you have a process in place to handle a breach with a data breach policy.
