You have been receiving lots of emails about GDPR. You've been receiving emails from companies you know, asking you if they can still contact you. What is this all about?
GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation, is what's causing all the stir. It is an EU law that is compulsory for nearly all organisations and it takes effect from the 25th May 2018. Here at helpcomputing, we have noticed the number of GDPR offerings from various companies that want to make implementing GDPR more complex and more expensive than it needs to be.
GDPR doesn't need to be complicated
For small and medium sized businesses, it needn't be complex or time consuming. GDPR should bring about a change in the way you think about the data that is in your company and how you protect it. GDPR will be something that you'll need to be mindful of as you run your business.
The Information Commisioner's Office (ICO) has the power to fine your business for not getting its GDPR on.
You must at least initiate your path towards GDPR. You should look to start this, complete the process and register on the Public Register of Data Controllers - as soon as possible.
If you haven't been able to complete this before the 25th May 2018, we think it is important to start as soon as possible. If your organisation processes personal information on a computer then failure to register your organisation is a criminal offence.
helpcomputing can help with GDPR
GDPR is time consuming to get to grips with, but it is not hard. We'll get you started.
You will work with us for approximately three sessions, each lasting about an hour or so. Once we have started, we would declare helpcomputing as your temporary Data Protection Officer and the ICO's gaze should be diverted elsewhere. You can schedule your subsequent sessions for whenever you have the time and the budget. Once we have finished, you will understand GDPR, you will possess documentation and guidelines, and you will be in a position to register with the ICO.
Please fill in the form below. You can schedule yourself in for your first session. Your sessions will be held remotely and so we will connect to your computer. Your first session will cost £80.00. Subsequent sessions are £70.00.
More information about how we process the data that you supply here can be found in the privacy link at the foot of this page.
Once you have booked your session, we will send you an invoice. Please look out for the invoice, you will need to settle the invoice before we can help. Once you have done so, we'll make further preparations and contact you to start your GDPR journey!
