You may be aware of the forthcoming changes to data protection legislation from May 25th 2018 called GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) which will affect all business. Gray Dawes view this piece of legislation very positively as it clearly defines what personal data is being held, where it came from, who it is shared with and why. There will also be a great emphasis on data consent process and policies.
Gray Dawes continues work in accordance with current data protection legislation and will ensure that we are fully compliant to the new regulations by early 2018, well ahead of the 25th May 2018 enforcement date.
We have a working group which is assessing the impact of the new legislation across all areas of the business including Supplier relations, Operations, Technology, Marketing, Finance and Account Management. This working group is delivering an plan that will highlight action points and process changes to be implemented along with a new training schedule for all our 140+ employees.
Our commitment is to keep all our clients updated on this work and the steps which both Gray Dawes are taking and those required by our corporate client companies and supplier partners.
