GDPR Compliance

The new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) come into effect on 25 May 2018 – is your business ready?

Many of the regulations within the GDPR will apply to your organisation and elements of the work carried out within it. The legislation will bring higher standards for handling personal data and greater expectations for improved transparency, enhanced data security and increased accountability for processing personal data.

Preparation is essential and Handover HR can support your business with the time and resource commitments needed to carry out the groundwork before the arrival of the new law.

For those that don’t comply, the penalties are severe.  Fines can be as high as 20 million Euros for serious violations or 4% of turnover, whichever is greater.

These are the 6 steps that Handover HR suggest you take to prepare:

Step 1
Identify someone responsible within the organisation for data processing and ensure that they understand their obligations.

Step 2
Assess your organisation’s compliance with the GDPR regulations by auditing your current practices.

Step 3
Review your existing documentation.

Step 4
Put relevant processes into place, such as data processing documents, standard operating procedures and define how you will deal with a data breach.

Step 5
Review consent mechanisms and gain the relevant consents where necessary.

Step 6
Ensure that your teams are aware of their obligations under the act.


Handover HR have put together various support packges, which have been designed to suit the varying requirements and budgets of our customers.
