Turning Point, a leading social enterprise operating in the health and social care sector, has appointed Crown Records Management to help it prepare for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that comes into force in May this year.
The regulation will give EU citizens new rights over their personal data, including the right to ask for it to be edited or deleted, as well as bringing in huge fines for data breaches.
Simon Allen, Business Development Manager at Crown Records Management, said: “Many businesses are concerned about being ready in time for the EU General Data Protection Regulation. However, there are also clear benefits and advantages for those who take the right steps to update their information management so that they understand what data they have, where it is, why they’ve got it and how they’re using it, not forgetting how they can gain value from it.”
