Although the GDPR regulations came into force exactly twelve months ago, many smaller businesses in the Aylesbury area are still struggling to adhere to their responsibilities under the new legislation and are leaving themselves at risk of falling on the wrong side of the law warns a local data expert.
The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) give individuals clearly defined rights on how their personal data is collected, stored and used, but the new laws are causing operational challenges for some smaller businesses who are struggling to put in place and maintain the right processes to uphold those rights.
Data insights consultancy AM 18 is offering businesses in Aylesbury and surrounding areas assistance to adapt to the regulations should they be struggling to remain compliant.
Failure to comply with the GDPR can result in hefty fines and legal action, so the AM 18 team is urging businesses in the area to get in touch for a free consultation on how they can catch up with their competitors and ensure that any data they collect, use and store is done so within the new framework.
As leaders in data, AM 18 has assisted a number of companies to become compliant with the GDPR regulations and wants to help local businesses avoid any legal pitfalls that they may not be aware of or are unsure of how to approach when it comes to their consumer, stakeholder and employee data.
