GDPR Aide Memoire for Sole Traders and Small Businesses

GDPR

As sole traders and owners of a small business return to our desks at the dawn of 2019, it is time to review our Data Protection requirements.  The new EU rule, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became law in May 2018, there is still a great deal of confusion at SME and sole trader level.

Many small businesses do not have the time or resources to ensure they fully comply with the new GDPR requirements as it requires several obligations around data security and data usage.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has published an eight question checklist  aimed at helping sole traders and self-employed individuals assess their compliance with new data protection laws.  A copy of the questions and accompanying notes is available on our website and can by accessed by following the GDPR checklist link

The ICO said its checklist is aimed at improving understanding of data protection and making sure sole traders are keeping people’s personal data secure.  The checklist will help sole traders understand how compliant they are and provides links to relevant ICO guidance and further information as well as practical suggestions on how to stay in line with the law.

Helpline and resources
The new Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in May and applies to all businesses that hold and use customer data.
Fines for those who break it can be significant reaching go up to €20m or 4% of annual global turnover.
A range of resources is available on the ICO website while sole traders and small businesses can also contact the dedicated ICO helpline on 0303 123 1113.

If you would like a copy of the checklist in word, PDF or excel format please contact the team at Elite Corporate Solutions on 01482 635400 or to request a call back please click this link to take you to our contact form.
