GDPR Shredding. Is your business compliant with GDPR legislation?

MAY 25TH 2018. GDPR is here.

Quote "The obligations in the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) apply directly to every organisation in Ireland from 25th May 2018. This means all public, private and voluntary organisations of every size need to be familiar with the requirements around what information must be given to all individuals when their personal data is being collected, used and stored and with the rights individuals have in relation to controlling how their personal data is treated.”
Helen DixonData Protection Commissioner (DPC), Ireland.

What does GDPR mean for my business?

GDPR and Shredding – How it can impact your business.


The GDPR directive came into force on May 25th 2018.
Businesses or organisations face fines of up to €20m or 4% of annual global turnover for non-compliance under the new regulations.

These changes are designed to reflect the modern world in which we live and put the “INDIVIDUAL” at the heart of the updated Data Protection Laws. The world has changed since 1988 when the Data Protection commissioners office was set up and the volumes of information that your business stores on your customers has exploded. GDPR all about ensuring that this information is treated appropriately and with the level of respect that it deserves. Organisations must comply & put themselves into a position where they can demonstrate compliance.

These legislative changes enhance individual rights concerning the information you may hold.

  • Removal of fees for making access requests
  • Right to be forgotten
  • Right to erasure where information no longer serves its original purpose
  • Right to seek compensation in the event that a shortcoming leads to damage

As an organisation that holds confidential information on individuals, staff and customers you can expect to be held accountable in the event of a breach. At a minimum you must;

  • Demonstrate compliance
  • Be clear on why information is being retained & what it is used for
  • Know where it is at all times
  • Take necessary steps to ensure that the information is secure
  • Demonstrate that your organisation is taking necessary steps to dispose of information at the appropriate time – This is where we come in, with some really useful services.
  • Demonstrate that access to information is controlled and restricted.

Every business is entrusted by customers, staff and the public at large to demonstrate commitment to keeping information safe & secure. The future looks bright for organisations who take GDPR seriously. There may be some surprises ahead for organisations who fail to comply with these regulations.

Information in any form should not be retained for any longer than is absolutely necessary.
