The GDPR will be enforced from 25th May 2018 in the UK. To help provide an audit of actions by users of websites and apps we've developed the GDPR Audit Service. A secure, encrypted method to log user actions and return all as an audit trail.
Find out the very latest information about the GDPR from the Information Commissioner's Office: GDPR Overview.
The GDPR is a reform on the existing Data Protection Act (DPA) 1998. Despite Brexit, the UK will still adopt and enforce due to the nature of business between countries and the fact privacy is an important right to all and businesses and those collecting data should be accountable for best practices.
The GDPR will affect businesses, organisations and individuals. "Controllers" and "Processors" of individual data will need to ensure they meet the GDPR. Where any personal or sensitive personal data is stored the GDPR will apply or risk fines of up to 10 Million Euros or 2% of global turnover.
The DPA, like the GDPR defined rules that helped protect personal data being stored. However, the GDPR is more detailed and aims to make some of the grey areas around data, clearer. It also introduces new rights for individuals and strengths existing rights that already exist under the DPA.
"Controllers" and "Processors" can meet the requirements of the GDPR by becoming aware of the regulation. The GDPR Audit can assist in the secure storing and retrieval of the users activity for example the time they registered with your service or when terms where accepted.
