Making your GDPR Message Stand Out
There is no doubt that GDPR is a complex subject. For some organisations it is a real headache, especially when it comes to communicating with their staff about what needs to be done to ensure compliance with the regulator.
What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the new European Union Regulation.
In essence it involves the protection of personal data and the rights of individuals. It is a whole series of data privacy enactments that came into effect 25 May 2018 for European Union countries and citizens.
What are the opportunities for your organisation?
There are many opportunities that GDPR brings for organisations that truly embed data protection as a key part of their culture. Some of the benefits include:
- Be known as a trusted organisation
- Win new clients
- Retain current clients
- Increase market share
- Increase profitability
- Enhance reputation
For organisations that understand how to make the most of the regulation they will gain trust and a bigger market share. After all, who wants to deal with a company that doesn’t care about whether personal data can be stolen or not?
The clock keeps ticking
Even though the clock has ticked down and passed the deadline of 25 May 2018, any time is a good time to review exactly how your GDPR messaging is working. Have you made it clear to your buyers as to how you keep their personal information secure?
Levels of awareness
How aware of data protection changes are: your Board, your staff, your interns or your volunteers? How well are you communicating with them?
How we can help your organisation
Demonstrating to the Information Commissioner’s Office (or any other Supervisory Authority) that your GDPR communications are working is now essential. Demonstrating to your buyers that you secure and protect their data is also essential.
