Are your Printers and Photocopiers GDPR compliant?
GDPR – The General Data Protection Regulation will replace the current Data Protection Act 1998 which will come into force on the 25th May 2018.
Companies that fail to comply could be fined up to €20 million or 4% of their global turnover (whichever is greater) per incident.
Who will it affect:
GDPR will affect any organisations that obtain and store personal data; including names, photos, health records, bank details, social media details etc.
As a general rule, it’s best to assume that if a person can be identified from the information you have about them, i.e. name, telephone number, address, IP address etc., then it can be classed as personal data under GDPR.
