With the impending General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) just seven months away from enforcement, British hosting firm UKFast this week launches a GDPR Pocket Guide to help organisations from multiple sectors avoid fines for non-compliance.
GDPR is the biggest shake-up in data regulation in decades and UKFast’s Pocket Guide is proving exceptionally popular across a range of sectors, with thousands of copies ordered within days of the launch.
Broken down into sector-specific chapters and offering actionable advice, UKFast’s Pocket Guide provides everything businesses need to get up to speed on GDPR compliance, all in the palm of their hand.
Specialist advice for the retail, hospitality and leisure, professional services, not-for-profit, IT and public sectors outlines first steps and key considerations as organisations from all sectors work towards GDPR compliance in May 2018.
UKFast CEO Lawrence Jones said: “Statistics show that many businesses are not ready, so we’ve created the GDPR Pocket Guide to educate the marketplace and help organisations steer clear of catastrophic fines.
“It’s absolutely vital for businesses to act now so they’re operating within the GDPR framework by May. GDPR represents an opportunity rather than a threat, but that doesn’t mean there’s not an incredible amount of work to be done.”
“It’s of critical importance to build relationships between data controllers and data processors. To understand where your data is stored is a first critical step to understanding your supply chain.
“Because the liability under GDPR is now joint between processor and controller, you need to work with a partner that understands their responsibilities and has the ISO certifications to prove it.”
