From 25th May 2018, the processing of personal data by organisations will have to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation.
The ICO states:
“The law on data protection says what you should do when you collect, use, store or do anything else with people’s personal data. This law changes on 25 May 2018.
The changes reflect the realities of the digital age and the need for people to take more control over their personal data.
Your customers, employees and other individuals need to be able to trust you to look after and use their personal data properly and safely. Knowing they can trust you is good for your business.
Complying with the rules is also legally required.”
HTS have implemented new procedures to ensure that those who have access to customer and employee data comply with the regulations.
In line with ICO guidance, HTS promises total transparency and honesty in regards to the holding of customer and employee data. If you are concerned about the information HTS holds about you or the organisation you work for, or you would like to see a copy of the information held, please don’t hesitate to contact HTS’ GDPR Compliance Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
