In GDPR we trust

It’s the one-year anniversary. We caught up with our Data Protection expert, Charlotte to find out all about GDPR.
 
One year in, any advice on GDPR?
It’s nothing to be afraid of, GDPR is about doing the right thing with the personal data that we’re responsible for. Make sure you really understand the compliance requirements but don’t be restricted by them. Have confidence in what you know and you’ve got this.
 
Here are five helpful tips to ensure you’re on track:
1. It’s really important to understand how you’re using data – data flow diagrams are really helpful at presenting this information in an easy to digest way.
 
2. Prioritise! Once you have an understanding of how you’re using data identify the gaps and work on these first.
 
3. Think differently – it isn’t always a one size fits all solution, consider the bigger picture about how data is being used.
 
4. Awareness is key – it’s really important to educate people on what GDPR is and why the legislation has been introduced.
 
5. Build good relationships – it’s all about building trust with all your stakeholders, to ensure they understand the compliance requirements.
 
 
It’s all about building trust
In celebration of the GDPR anniversary, we’re hosting an ‘Art of Building Trust’ month. Implementing GDPR is the minimum – and at Harrods, we really want to exemplify how we build trust. I don’t want to spoil the surprise too much for any colleagues reading this article, but we’re going to have lots going on, including compelling stories and helpful data tips.
