The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25 May 2018 (including in the UK regardless of its decision to leave the EU) and will impact every organisation which holds or processes personal data. It will introduce new responsibilities, including the need to demonstrate compliance, more stringent enforcement and substantially increased penalties than the current Data Protection Act (DPA) which it will supersede.
Integral Safety Management Ltd is committed to high standards of information security, privacy and transparency. We place a high priority on protecting and managing data in accordance with accepted standards. The company will comply with all applicable GDPR regulations when they take effect in 2018, including as a data processor, while also working closely with our customers and partners to meet contractual obligations for our procedures, products and services. Our team of experienced business consultants and specialists will also help to support customers in meeting their obligations through the provision of expert services and value-adding solutions.
Integral Safety Management Ltd has three main areas of focus in preparing for GDPR:
- Building on existing security and business continuity management systems and certifications.
- Product programmes to support compliance for users of our software applications including solutions to streamline the process and drive greater efficiency
- Provision of services and solutions which help customers to understand and prepare for GDPR, develop compliance plans and build a stronger platform for the future by taking control of their data
It is important to recognise that compliance is a shared responsibility and all organisations will need to adapt business processes and data management practices.

The company will implement tools as appropriate that support the process, provide necessary security and ongoing delivery of objectives and services.
