Most businesses I talk to are now aware of GDPR. Many are already working through requirements: such as contacting existing clients for consent and checking that their data is secure. The question I keep getting asked, however, is 'How do we generate new business and remain GDPR compliant?'
So I've been doing a lot of research and, with the disclaimer that I'm not a lawyer and this is my opinion only, I have been pointing people in the direction of the appropriate page on the ICO website and sharing what others are doing. There are quite a few grey areas around GDPR, which, it is expected, will be solved in the courts at some point in the future. In the meantime, understanding what is mandatory and what is best practice is critical.
If you'd like to find out more - I'll be sharing what I've found out and signposting good sources of help at a number of networking events around Oxfordshire: details below. If you are based in the Thames Valley and would like me to share what I’ve learnt, please contact me.
