Chicken Licken says the sky has fallen – #94
Lee Gilbert’s thoughts on GDPR,
“It seems every type of company from Accountants, HR Advisory firms, Law Practices, IT companies, Greengrocers and Candle Stick makers… have been jumping on the band wagon of running seminar’s on the subject without truly understanding (or having read in some cases!) the Regulation and its subsequent Recitals.”
It’s Regulation 2016/679. It’s 88 pages long and there are 173 Recitals…. by the way.
Some people say complying with GDPR requires extensive planning and in some cases, a complete change in processes and procedures.
The reality, for most, is the change is minuscule.
It should not be ignored but the changes and updates required are so small you could argue they merely constitute the best practice many organisations have been applying for some time.
Put simply, GDPR is designed to clean up some poor practices conducted by the few. It is the many though who are feeling the brunt.
