Safe Contractor accreditation by Alcumus seeks to help Trades establish their credentials in order to win bids for work. It presents you as a safe, stable and ethical business to work with. It has become a must have to work with many organisations and prequalifies you for certain tenders.
The worst thing you could do is copy someone else’s’ policies and submit them as your own without any systems behind them, as this is fraud. You have a legal obligation to maintain a minimum level of data security around any personally identifiable information, including your staff, subcontractors, customers and potential customers. In some cases you can have personal liability (not your company) up to a £500,000 fine from the ICO for being complicit or negligent in your duty to privacy. You should also identify any information that is sent to you by your customers that is supplied in confidence as losing this will affect that trust relationship that you are hoping to secure with this scheme.
IT Ambulance can quickly provide you with the appropriate solution for a reliable and secure business system, together with helping you genuinely meet your obligations and produce meaningful Policies to meet compliance with GDPR, Privacy and Data Security.
