WHAT IS GDPR? (GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION)
GDPR is the EU’s new data protection regulation, designed to harmonise the data privacy laws across Europe. It is the most important change in data privacy regulation in the last 20 years.
It applies to all businesses that collect data from or monitor the behaviour of EU residents, meaning it not only applies to EU businesses, but businesses in any country worldwide who deal with the data of EU residents. Businesses worldwide are required to collect data more securely.
PREPARING FOR GDPR
World Options is committed to ensuring the protection of personal data
As a company the amount of personal data stored is relatively limited due to our systems being designed for companies, however even with the small amount of data we store major developments have had to be made to protect and adhere to the enhanced regulation.
World Options have reviewed all internal systems that are used by:
- Internal staff
- Service providers
- 3rd party applications
The pages on the left detail the changes in policies and processes made by World Options to become GDPR Compliant by the 25th of May 2018 deadline.
