GDPR – what have we learned so far?
It’s 2018 – the year GDPR will become part of UK legislation. Yet findings by Alert Logic suggest that only 5% of EU companies believe they are in compliance with all GDPR requirements.
We’ve written a lot about GDPR recently, and created several resources to help you prepare. So we thought you might like to start the new year by recapping on everything we’ve learned so far.
Where to start with GDPR
If you’re still getting your head around the idea of GDPR, then our article “Where to start with GDPR” is a great place to begin your journey, no matter what position you play in your company.
We talk about the steps you should take right now, from familiarising yourself with GDPR provisions, to hiring a legal expert to help you implement changes.
Four things HR will be responsible for after GDPR
If you work in HR, then you’ll need to know how GDPR might affect you directly. Our article “Four things HR will be responsible for after GDPR” aims to tackle the biggest changes you’ll face in your department.
The article covers:
- Gaining consent to process employee data
- New rights for employees as data subjects

Is your HR software secure?
If you use HR software to manage employee data, you’ll need to feel confident that it’s being kept securely. Our article “Is your HR software provider keeping employee data safe?” will help you make a decision.
If you’re still using spreadsheets and paper files, you may find GDPR more difficult to comply with.
