GDPR ready in an hour, not days
If you haven't become GDPR Compliant yet, you're not alone. Despite the deadline of 25th May 2018, Gartner Analysts predict that more than half of companies won't be fully compliant by the end of 2018.
Businesses are risking fines of up to £17m or 4% of their global turnover by hoping GDPR will suddenly disappear. It won't. It's here to stay.
Can you imagine how relieved you'll feel once you know you are compliant? You can get back to doing what you do best - running your business.
But hiding your head in the sand is the worst thing you can do. How long will it be before you're caught out?
We're not here to scare you. Getting a fine is unlikely, unless you're seriously abusing personal data. But how do you know if you're abusing personal data?
Luckily, GDPRQuick is here to solve your GDPR headaches.
GDPRQuick creates all your GDPR compliancy documents automatically, by asking you a series of questions about your business and the personal data you collect.
Compliance far easier than you think, but you need to take action now.
Businesses who are taking GDPR seriously are already one step ahead of their competitors. Many businesses are now insisting on scrutinising other business' GDPR policies before they work together. If you don't take action, you're not only breaking the law, you're breaking your business too.
We've decompiled the official GDPR documentation into questions that you answer about your business. With our GDPRQuick Wizard, it takes an hour or less to create all you need to comply with GDPR.
Once you've created your GDPR documents, you can embed them into your websites, using GDPRQuick to keep them up-to-date and compliant, leaving you to be able to do what you do best - run your business.
What are the risks of non-compliance?
Whether or not you use GDPRQuick or a specialist GDPR lawyer to help put together your GDPR documentation, you're working towards complying towards new data protection laws that not only protect your data, but you're giving others confidence in your business.
Let's have a look at why you should work towards complying with GDPR:
If I don't take action
- Fines of up to £17m or 4% of global turnover
- Loss of credibility and reputation
- Lack of customer trust
- Makes it harder to work with other businesses
- Your competitors gain an advantage over you
- Your customers more likely to falsify data
- Lack of control of personal data
- Worry of being investigated
If I take action now
- Clients will trust you to handle their information
- Secure in the knowledge that you're complying with laws
- Your brand will grow its reputation
- Operate across the EU with ease
- Easier to collaborate with other businesses
- Gives your business a competitive advantage
- More accurate, reliable data from your customers
- Your business becomes secure and accountable
Who needs to comply?
There is a misconception that very small businesses don't need to comply with GDPR. Whilst there is some truth in this, almost all businesses that store or process any personal information about EU citizens need to comply.
If one or more of the following applies to your business or organisation, then you need to comply with GDPR:
- You are active (or have a presence) in a EU country
- You don't have a presence in the EU, but you process personal data about EU residents
- You have more than 250 employees/members of staff
- You have less than 250 employees/staff, but collect, store or use personal information about employees or customers.
- You don't collect personal data, but you operate CCTV cameras
In reality, almost all businesses and organisations will be affected by GDPR.
Personal data is a piece of information that can be used to identify a person. Even if you're just a micro-business and are collecting and storing customer's names or email addresses, you need to comply with the new GDPR law. If you're the owner of a business, charity, start-up or organisation, the responsibility lies with you to ensure that you take steps now.
The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) is in charge of enforcing GDPR, and they are serious about upholding individual's rights.
Privacy breaches are taken seriously by the ICO, with organisations being fined substantial sums of money when they fail to protect personal data. See examples
Although GDPRQuick can't put the processes into place for your organisation to comply with GDPR (that's obviously down to you), by using us you'll be able to work towards compliance whilst putting together your documentation to ensure that you're ready - and protected - for the new regulations.
