Why you should care about data protection

GDPR is a growing concern for businesses. As we hear every day, there are potentially big fines for non-compliance.

But today, I want to talk about why data protection is important even if there were no fines or sanctions.

Put aside about your job and your business for a moment.

Think about this as an individual.

Create a record of your processing activities

I wrote an article about 2 months ago giving some practical guidance on how to start complying with GDPR.  Since I published the guidance, a number of people have said it really helped them get their head straight and get some clarity around the first logical steps that they needed to take. This week, I dig a little more into why step 2 (creating a central record of your processing activity) is so valuable.

Maybe I’m a GDPR imposter. But that’s OK.

Not long ago, I don't think I knew what GDPR was. Now I have trained in data protection and I'm advising clients about how to comply.

Maybe I'm a data protection imposter.

However, even those who have been doing this for years get it wrong. Knowing what I know, coupled with my years of experience improving IT security and delivering complex projects for clients, being a data protection imposter is OK.
