The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force at the end of this week. From Friday 25th May, Any organisation that handles data on any European citizen must conform to its requirements or face implications from one of the European data regulators, such as the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

In our following blog series you’ll find all the information you need around the wording and its requirements:

  1. Simplifying the complexities: how to manage data under GDPR, part one
  2. Simplifying the complexities: how to manage data under GDPR, part two
  3. Seven steps to GDPR-readiness

While GDPR’s enforcement date was announced a while ago, the ICO has promised that it will not turn into a witch-hunt to find organisations that aren’t completely ready. Instead, it is likely to be pragmatic around any requests or complaints it receives, wanting to see that a business has taken some steps to comply even if it is not fully there.

As such, it’s imperative for organisations to alter processes or adopt technology that shows a movement towards meeting GDPR’s demands. And, good news, we can help. Here are a few examples how:

Article 15 – Right of access

Quadient offers robust solutions around data management. We provide a technology platform to consolidate data from around your organisation. Simply export your data set into the technology platform, which can interrogate the data, identify and consolidate all information relating to the individual making the request.

Article 16 & 17 – Right to rectification and Right to erasure

In order to rectify, amend or delete information held on an individual, you need to be able to access all the appropriate data in question. By performing a data export across all systems and databases, we can help identify all associated records. Having done so, it is a simple case of identifying the information that needs to be amended or binned.

Article 19 – Notification obligation

When data is amended or deleted, the subject (customer / consumer) must be informed. Our tools can automatically generate documents and notification correspondence that ensures the subject is informed of exactly what has happened to their information. Templates guarantee that all required information is included and that all communications are standardised with the same format.
