How ever you tackle compliance with the UK GDPR, one of the most important things to do is understand where your data is and what data you have.
Many companies make assumptions about the data they hold and often miss vital areas.
Are you new into the council / charity you now work for and just need some handholding to help you find out where everything is?
This is where our data audit team come in. They are trained to ask the right questions and follow a detailed approach to auditing your data.
They will identify if you understand why you have the data you have. Should you be still carrying it under UK GDPR? How old is the data – does it meet with you data retention policies?
Getting this bit wrong will cause you heartbreak in the future.
