Coming into force May 2018, The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) intends to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union. GDPR is likely to have a number of impacts on how information is stored within Councils, and the processes and systems associated with data control and processing.
Our GDPR Readiness Programme has helped councils interpret these new regulations by providing a joined up action plan, standards and guidance to aid them in complying with the regulations. This joint effort has avoided duplicate effort across individual councils, ensuring a common understanding of the impact of GDPR and the controls that will need to be introduced.
We are currently working on the second phase of the Digital Partnership projects which will be published in October 2019 and relevant information will be published in due course.
