DPM and GDPR

The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is mandatory and comes into force on 25 May 2018 impacting every organisation which holds or processes personal data. It introduces new responsibilities, including the need to demonstrate compliance, more stringent enforcement and substantially increased penalties than the current Data Protection Act (DPA) which it will supersede.

The aim is to provide better protection of an individual’s rights with regards to the collection and use of personal data. DPM Services Ltd has always been committed to high standards of information security, privacy and transparency.

A high priority has always been placed on protecting and managing data either by ourselves or on behalf of our clients in accordance with these standards.

Steps have already been taken to comply with applicable GDPR regulations.

The principles of privacy by design and data protection by default as per Article 25 have been employed throughout and relevant compliance measures undertaken.

Article 32 Recommendations concerning safe storage, such as risk mitigation utilising technical measures and regular testing of organisational and technical areas have also been employed.

We have improved on the already high standard of data security and provided extra data protection training to all employees.

Led by our experienced management team, we have updated information security policies, procedures and have built on existing data management systems.

We implement tools as appropriate that support the process, provide necessary security and ongoing delivery of objectives.

Existing policies such as incident response plans and backup data retention have been reviewed and updated.

All the measures taken by DPM services Ltd are designed to:

  • Prevent unauthorised access and unlawful processing of data, prevent accidental loss, damage or destruction of data and preserve data integrity and data subject confidentiality.
  • Access to our servers is strictly restricted and various hardware and software mechanisms are in place to ensure the safety and security of our servers and the data within.
  • Our servers and those of third parties we utilise are based within the EU and data is not transferred outside of the EU by our systems.
  • Where we use third party suppliers or partners to process personal data we put a contract in place that sets out our expectations and requirements, especially regarding how they manage and securely transfer the personal information and fully comply with all applicable UK Data Protection.
