If you're anything like me, you're wondering how the calendar reads DECEMBER 15th! Year end is upon us, the holiday season and you likely have numerous social and corporate commitments to attend. Well, I would like to remind you not to forget about the GDPR count down!
My prediction; many will leave this to the very last minute. My suggestion; create a calendar task to read this article in early January and tackle all things data in the remaining 6 months until the legislation officially comes into effect.
December 2017 Although we might all be thinking of other things in December, we don’t want to get complacent. We only have 5 months left until the legislation comes into effect. This month you need to be thinking of the other data subjects’ rights, not just consent. ACTION: Make sure that you and the DP Officer are clear about what the right to Access of information, the right to Rectification of that data and the right of Erasure mean and that you are confident that you have systems and processes in place to manage this. It might be a good time to consider a data amnesty and get people submitting their lists over the Holiday season so that you can evaluate them in the New Year.
