The clock is ticking. GDPR is just around the corner – but are you in the right frame of mind for the upcoming data challenge? Comma has put together this brief overview to help you ask yourself some poignant questions about how GDPR can work for you and your business.
If a customer called you tomorrow and said “I want you to delete all of the data you have on me from your system,” could you do it?
Your first thought might be, “yes, of course”, but take a step back for a moment. Would it really be as simple as deleting one centralised file from your system? You might have all your data stored in one place (if you don’t, we need to talk) but is that the only place that data is kept – or are there copies elsewhere?
This, essentially, is the crux of GDPR, and it’s a point that many businesses are missing in the confusion surrounding the new regulations coming into force this May. If you sieve away all of the opinion pieces and legal jargon, the purpose of GDPR is to protect our personal data and give all of us greater control over how our information is used, stored and removed.
