GDPR Dos and Don’ts for Small Businesses

Resource GDPR

When the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was passed in 2016, it introduced strict new requirements for businesses, big and small, that process personal data. While larger organizations will often have dedicated privacy teams and budgets to invest in compliant privacy programs, privacy responsibilities at small and medium businesses (SMBs) are often in addition to an employee’s main job role. This can make becoming compliant with the GDPR’s 99 articles a daunting task. But, no matter what stage you’re at with your journey toward GDPR compliance, there are a number of essential “dos” and “don’ts” to help ensure that you stay on track.


The Dos and Don’ts of the GDPR

There are certain elements of processing personal data that SMBs should consider from the outset of any new project. These include key areas of GDPR compliance such as reliance on a legal basis for the processing of data, managing data subject rights, and understanding requirements for processing sensitive personal information. This infographic includes the crucial “dos” and “don’ts” to help SMBs respect the obligations of the GDPR and accelerate their journey towards GDPR compliance.
