Getting ready for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham is “optimistic” that UK businesses will be ready for GDPR by May next year because organisations are “taking it seriously”.

To check how ready you are, the regulator has designed a self assessment toolkit to help you get your house in order, ready for the  new legislation. It includes getting to grips with the new rights of individuals, handling subject access requests, consent, data breaches, and designating a data protection officer, under the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation.

You can access the toolkit here.

Here at HQN, we have a full range of training products and services specifically designed to help housing organisations practically prepare for the new legislation. Take a look at what’s on offer here.
