DOES GDPR IMPACT MY BUSINESS?
Whatever size of business you run, you will almost certainly keep personal data about your customers and prospects. It might be as simple as an electronic list of email addresses, as complex as a full-on Customer Management System. The rules even include old-school paper files. To make things simple, if you run a business, it’s safe to assume you fall under the GDPR.
It’s set to affect all sorts of IT systems. Post-GDPR, for example, you can’t send an email to anyone, B2B or B2C, without first getting their consent, their opt-in. There’s no distinction between personal and business email addresses. It’s up to you to prove you have someone’s consent, which means you need a clear audit trail complete with a time stamp, explaining what the person opted into and how they did it.
Can your IT system do that for you? Can it handle the impact on HR records and every other list of people’s details you keep?
DOES GDPR AFFECT MY IT SYSTEMS?
If you store customer data electronically, whether or not you use it for internal purposes, marketing, communications or sales, you have to comply with GDPR. And your IT systems have to support compliance. You want the transition to be smooth, trouble-free and secure, and you want everything to work correctly from day one.
