Your questions - answered
Are there any costs associated with UK GDPR compliance?
What businesses does the UK GDPR apply to?
If they are situated in the UK and sell to clients in the UK or EU, all firms that collect and process personal data must comply with UK GDPR.
What does a GDPR consultant do?
A GDPR consultant is a GDPR professional who advises and directs businesses in achieving full compliance with the regulation.
Why does your business need to be UK GDPR compliant?
Compliance with the GDPR reflects that you respect your users' privacy and go above and beyond the minimum legal requirements to protect their rights and personal data.
Do businesses with less than 250 employees have to comply with the UK GDPR's requirements?
Despite the UK GDPR's broad scope, there is no exception for small businesses. Even if a company has less than 250 employees, it must still comply with the entirety of the UK GDPR.
Is a privacy notice from our business sufficient to comply with UK GDPR?
No, it is not sufficient. While a privacy notice is an important aspect of addressing one of the UK GDPR's transparency principles, it does not imply that you are GDPR compliant.
Can my business be UK GDPR certified?
Obtaining a UK GDPR certification is currently not possible. While the ICO is working on developing a UK-based GDPR certification, completing a UK GDPR audit is the best method to convince your customers that you are GDPR compliant.
Our approach is designed to be an all-in-one solution for all your privacy and information security needs. We deeply understand the challenges of your industry and can speak to you in a language you understand.
