As experts in data protection, privacy and the GDPR, we wanted to share our knowledge with you to ensure your compliance journey is as simple as possible. With a clear understanding, data protection best practice will become a natural part of your organisation’s way of working - a benefit to you and your business.
So take a look over our GDPR and data protection resources below.
When and how to notify a data breach
Almost all organisations have had a data breach. Some of them know they have had a data breach. Most probably don’t. People tend to think that a data breach is caused by a hacker breaking into an organisation’s systems and gaining access to customer personal information for malicious purposes. The reality is that personal data breaches are far more likely to be the result of careless mistakes by employees than the work of hackers. In fact, 90% of UK data breaches are caused by human error.
The Privacy Guy – Privacy Promise 2 – Inventory
The second of our Eight Privacy Promises. To comply with privacy rules including the GDPR and the CCPA your organisation needs an inventory of personal information.

Personal information moves quickly and easily and is often kept in multiple locations.
The Privacy Guy – Privacy Promise 1 – Awareness

If they don’t understand, they won’t care. And if they don’t care, people will not do what is needed to protect personal information and prevent a data breach.
How to comply with the CCPA
Let’s get one thing straight – privacy protection is not going away. California is the first US State to give its residents a high level of protection and control over their personal information. It is not going to be the last. And protecting individuals’ rights over their information is a worldwide phenomenon driven by genuine concerns.
