GDPR are regulations for the handling of consumer data – and you have to be compliant to avoid the tough penalties for data breaches and data privacy violations. If you run a business, or any group or organisation that holds personal information you have to ensure you are both data compliant and secure.
What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are privacy laws.
They protect residents in the UK and the European Union.
GDPR compels anybody that collects or processes people’s personal data must comply with its rules.
The regulations are intended to ensure everyone’s privacy and rights, whether the company collecting the data is based inside or outside of the EU, regardless of who is handling their personal information.
The UK GDPR and DPA 2018 set a maximum fine of £17.5 million or 4% of annual global turnover – whichever is greater – for infringements.

Alan James and Associates
We engaged with FORTIS DPC to ensure we were GDPR compliant and to also outsource our DPO. Howard and his team were fantastic, they really helped us every step of the way. We would wholeheartedly recommend them.
Howard and team provide a fantastic service and I know with Howard on board, GDPR is not something I need to worry about. Recently he handled a Data Subject Access Request quickly and efficiently. Without Howard this would have cost me a lot of time and a headache!
Following the initial setup, they ensure we are kept up to date where new documentation is required, and conduct regular audits to ensure we remain in compliance. They have been on hand when we have any queries or when there have been any issues arising.
