GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European-wide framework controlling the handling of Personally Identifiable Information (PII). IT Ambulance have qualified Privacy Managers on staff that can help you deliver a system that is GDPR Compliant.

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) is a set of legally binding principles governing the processing of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) for any data subject in the EU. If you hold my name or email address then you hold PII and if you hold records to pay your staff then you must be aware of this regulation and be able to demonstrate compliance.

Despite Brexit, these principles were incorporated into law in the UK under The Privacy Act 2018. In the UK the Loss and Misuse of PII is handled by the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) and since 2018 they have used their powers under this act to issue heavy fines, up to 4% Global Turnover or £20,000,000 and they have the ability to make the Officers of a Company personally liable, up to £500,000.

What does GDPR seek to control?

  • The lawfulness, fairness and transparency of your holding a subjects PII
  • To Limit the purpose, you can use PII
  • To minimise the data you hold on any individual
