ISO QA’s team become qualified EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Practitioners

Isle of Man organisations concerned about the implications of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) can benefit from ISO QA Isle of Man’s qualified support.

Kevin Burnell and Gemma Burnell have both passed the Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation Practitioner qualification awarded by Act Now and endorsed by Centre for Information Rights (CIR).

GDPR is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years and will provide a single, harmonised data privacy law for the European Union. With the increasing risk of data breaches from cyber-attacks, GDPR aims to prevent the loss of personal data by improving data security for all individuals living in EU member states.

Coming into force 25 May 2018, GDPR will present implementation and compliance challenges for Isle of Man organisations, particularly in the public sector where the appointment of a Data Protection Officer will be mandatory.

The Data Protection Officer (DPO) responsibilities will be a challenge to deliver, given the breadth of knowledge required to manage IT systems, and the requisite familiarity with the legal aspects of the GDPR.

As qualified Practitioners, ISO QA Isle of Man are able to fulfil the role of Data Protection Officer (DPO) under the GDPR, and covers the Regulation in depth.

ISO QA Isle of Man can help organisations on implementation and compliance requirements, the necessary policies and processes, as well as important elements of effective data security management.

To find out more about how ISO QA Isle of Man can help your Isle of Man business become GDPR compliant, contact Gemma or Kevin today on 612627 or visit: https://www.isoiom.com/gdpr-isle-of-man/
