As a result of all this hustle and bustle around internet and data privacy you are probably asking yourself; do I need to update our website to comply with GDPR or do anything else for our business to make sure we are not fined? Well, we hope this plain language quick guide can help you protect your business, your customers, and your data quickly and easily.
Disclaimer: This is not legal advice! You are responsible for understanding GDPR requirements and for a full understanding please seek legal counsel. Our goal is to be helpful and give a high-level common sense overview of what you need to do to comply with GDPR.
GDPR decision tree for US companies:
Personal Data Definition: Information relating to an identifiable natural person. A person can be identified from information such as name, identification number, location data, online identifier (IP or MAC address), or other specific factors that allow you to determine who they are as a natural person.
What you need to do if you need to comply with GDPR
Standard data and device security measures apply, these are straightforward and you should already be doing all of these data breach protection measures: password policy, secure website, updating your website plugins regularly, running anti-malware, end point security for devices that can access business or customer information like email or company data of any kind. End point security is data encryption, remote wipe, remote lock, password policy enforcement, and the like. For a list of resources please go to our resources page. If you need to install remote wipe data breach protection and prevention please sign up for DriveStrike.
New things you need to consider:
- Implement a cookie disclosure notification. Use a notification that website visitors see – you are probably noticing these all over the place these days. If your website is a WordPress or other template you can install and enable the plugin easily. If your website is custom you will need to contact your webmaster and ask them to implement a viable solution.
