GDPR still relevant for the UK

GDPR still relevant for the UK | Kate's Content Store | Scoop.it

By Steve Wood, Interim Deputy Commissioner... "we’ve been working hard on producing a set of guidance on GDPR, with an overview of the law being the first substantive part of that.  Once implemented in the EU, the GDPR will be relevant for many organisations in the UK – most obviously those operating internationally.  The other main reason is that the GDPR has several new features – for example breach notification and data portability.…"

Sandy Gilchrist's curator insight, July 8, 6:18 AM
Whereas the US laws have dictated for several years now that data breaches must be disclosed to the authorities, the EU has until May 2018 to prepare itself for GDPR, one major requirement being also to disclose data breaches.  The impact of this will be wide reporting in the Press.  One issue I come across today is that UK and EU companies often express shock when I explain to them that similar organisations in their sector are already being hacked - the preference being that they would rather not admit the risk to themselves that they too are being hacked, daily.  The consequence of such disclosures will be a very real reaction by customers and the market about the apparent rise in hacking, which will further drive more and more of us to retreat from using the internet - NB 45% have already stated that they are not banking or shopping online due to their Privacy concerns (92% say it is their #1 concern).  Therefore, it is time to take action right now.  It's the Law.  You cannot just simply hide behind the "I'm compliant with Data Protection regulations" cloak - it's killing your business.  The best way to deal with the problem is to own up to the reason - you are holding private data of your customers and employees on connected servers - so remove that data, right now.  LifeBank provides a suite of Privacy services that review your overall risk, both in terms of legal adherence as well as commercial issues... and then we provide the ideal platform to provide individuals that do business with you with their very own private data on their own offline LifeBank, thereby destroying the Privacy concern, whilst at the same time allowing everyone that needs to do business with you the opportunity to continue to transact with you online.  Email info@lifebanksystems.com today for more information...

... If you drill down into the top 500 agencies, you’ll find that the fastest-growing and most profitable firms are those that are devoted to specific areas of expertise. Social media, experiential marketing, and customer relationship marketing account for many of today's competency specialists. Other types of successful market specialists include travel/tourism, agriculture, food, pharma, and senior living.Solutions, not servicesUltimately, marketers aren’t buying a service from an agency. They’re buying a solution. And effective solutions spring from deep areas of expertise, not a from a “wide range of experience” as most agencies are prone to tout....
