How to make your website GDPR compliant

In Business adviceby Simon

To make sure your website and business are truly 100% compliant with the upcoming GDPR, you ideally need a readiness assessment performed by an industry expert. Such as assessment will provide a visual gap analysis of all aspects of compliance showing where your business is in relation to being fully compliant. This would then be followed by a readiness report with clear guidance on actions required to reach full compliance.

We have partnered with a seasoned Data Privacy consultant who is performing these readiness assessments and reports, though at the time of writing you may need to join the queue is his services are in high demand right now. If you don't make the deadline of the 25th May 2018, it is at least better to be fully compliant a bit late than not at all. Clear signs of efforts to become compliant will likely reduce the chance of warnings or worse, fines.

Depending on the scale and simplicity of your business, you may decide to take a risk and not have a full readiness assessment, in which case it is worth at least ensuring your web site is as compliant as it can be.
