Protecting your customer data while recycling your old hardware
The General Data Protection Regulation- How to comply.
Is your Business ready for the new Data protection act?
From 25th May 2018 The old Data Protection act (DPA) will be replaced by the General Data Protection regulation (GDPR). This framework will have much tougher punishments for businesses who do not comply with the new rules concerning storage and protecting personal data.
One of the biggest changes that small and large business will have to deal with is consent. The new regulations mean companies will have to keep a record of when an individual gave consent to store and use personal data. This will mean an active agreement, which can be withdrawn at any time. This could be in the form of a screen grab or a form. GDPR therefore gives people the right to be forgotten.
But once your computers become obsolete how can you make sure you still comply with the new GDPR regulations? You need to make sure that the company you dispose of your computers through is registered and fully compliant. IT-Green has been dealing with the sensitive data of our customers since 2005.
