GDPR Data Protection for Small Business
Every business needs data to operate. Small businesses that process data, including personal data, need to understand GDPR data protection implications. Ensure your small business adheres to GDPR data protection best practices.
Small businesses that process personal data need to make sure their practices are compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
GDPR compliance information, out in the wild, can be quite complex. While some small businesses enjoy certain exemptions under the GDPR, these are very small exemptions. Within your business, you are still required to comply with almost all personal data processing compliance requirements under the GDPR. Searching GDPR, personal data, or other data compliance related phrases (like ‘GDPR small business’ on Google) can lead you down a very stressful rabbit-hole, where complex legal terms can seem quite terrifying.
To help you comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we have compiled this resource page. It will help you to initiate and evolve your small business GDPR compliance programme.
GDPR compliance in your everyday data processing is achievable. We are here to help you, as you continue your processing of personal data in a compliant way. Keep an eye out for our handy GDPR guides to help you deal with incidences and data breaches within the mandated time frames, and data subject rights requests within the required 30 days (one month).
