Is One GDPR Policy Template Enough?
The GDPR has now been in force in the UK since 2018. However, there are still hundreds of new and existing businesses who need to comply with the UK’s data protection framework. Unfortunately, it is not as simple as drafting one GDPR Policy! A suite of data protection policy documents policies are the best way to appraoch the UK’s data protection regime.
Imagine trying to bundle all of the GDPR requirements into one policy document! From data breaches and subject access requests, through to consent mechanisms. The aim of a policy is to set out the company’s objectives and aims. Employees also use the policy content to inform their understanding of each compliance area and the business objectives. Therefore, developing and implementing a suite of data protection policies that cover all your obligations is best practice.
Understanding the GDPR principles and the consent requirements are fundamental to effective data protection compliance.
Our office wall posters are already used by hundreds of businesses to support and remind staff about their obligations.
