New EU regulation will soon come into effect that will impact how all organisations collect and process people’s personal data. The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) will become law on 25th May 2018.
As we approach the 25th May 2018, STL is focused on GDPR compliance efforts. During our implementation period for the regulation, we have established cross-functional teams who are evaluating new requirements and restrictions imposed by GDPR and will take any action necessary to ensure that we handle data in compliance with applicable law by the 2018 deadline.
Our clients will receive updates in relation to operational & procedural changes that we’ve implemented and these have already started to be communicated.
STL has set a policy of adopting third party cloud based solutions, all with restricted access to client data by our employees, for its own key business systems. Our emails and website are also encrypted for extra safety.
As a Company, we hold very little personal data or details on our clients making for a smooth transition for when GDPR arrives and takes full effect.
