Data Protection through Data Destruction
GDPR and Shredding
The law relating to Data Protection across Europe has changed. On the 25th of May 2018 a new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect across all member states.
“The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) very significantly increases the obligations and responsibilities for organisations and businesses in how they collect, use and protect personal data. At the centre of the new law is the requirement for organisations and businesses to be fully transparent about how they are using and safeguarding personal data, and to be able to demonstrate accountability for their data processing activities.” www.gdprandyou.ie (Data Protection Commissioner)
The GDPR also has strong provisions to ensure compliance to its Articles. There will be an increase in both fines and enforcement across Europe to ensure organisations comply with the Regulation.
Where Personal Data is no longer needed or lawful to keep it is important to ensure that it is securely disposed of as it can represent a liability for you or your organisation.
