This is slightly different to the normal advice and information blogs. The ICO are running a campaign aimed at protecting elderly relatives, friends and neighbours after a funeral plan company was caught spamming thousands of older people.

Because it’s not really GDPR compliant! There are many companies out there that will try to sell you GDPR compliant email or mobile number data and will offer you all sorts of guarantees, contracts, and warranties.

Having a clear desk could be considered as your first line of defence. If you have locked away all your sensitive information, there is then little chance of a random person spotting all the sensitive personal information you have on your desk or inadvertently removing it and having it somewhere else.

A Kent based Pension company has just been fined £40,000 for sending 2 million spam emails. The Pension company did get Data Protection advice from somewhere but this was deemed misleading by the ICO and didn't save them from this fine.

Whether you completed your GDPR last May or have not quite started yet, you should consider completing a GDPR audit. This will help you understand your current level of compliance and also identify any urgent issues that you really do need to address. GDPR can be quite daunting and it can be difficult to know where to start.
