GDPR guidance for small businesses
On 25 May 2018 most processing of personal data by organisations will have to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation. The Information Commissioners Office (ICO) has published practical advice on how to comply with data protection law and how to improve data protection practices in your business, including how to keep employees’ and customers’ personal information secure and how to get ready for the data protection reforms.
The ICO has created the following package of resources and advice to help small businesses prepare for GDPR:
- The ICO’s Guide to the GDPR , which includes links to all the advice and guidance that is currently available and which will be the first place to get the latest updates;
- A Getting ready for the GDPR self help checklist which produces a bespoke report on what SMEs will need to do;
- An GDPR FAQs document answering the questions that have been asked most often by SMEs; and
- A dedicated GDPR preparation advice service helpline for small organisations – 0303 123 1113, option 4.
