GDPR compliance guide
We are currently living in the age of the fourth industrial revolution, an era of accelerated technical progress with new inventions and technology being developed every day. The pandemic of 2020 has further increased the use and adoption of technology propelling us forward.
With all this new and rapid technology innovation, it was plainly an important step to bring Data Protection Laws to make them up to date and make them fit for purpose in the modern world.
The last time we saw the law relating to Data Protection in the UK amended, none of the great data giants even existed and no one knew what a computer virus was, so clearly change was needed. It has been a long road but the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was finally launched in May 2018.
So many products and technologies now hold personal data in many hidden places, so we all need to know what we can and cannot do in relation to holding this information based on the laws that are in place. It can often be very confusing to understand, so this guide is designed to help you understand what the GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018 are and how they apply to your property business.

- On typical development projects, data is exchanged with architects, surveyors and project-managers.
- New infrastructure needs to be made to be resilient against cyber attacks.
- Construction firms with property and facilities management need to ensure that their data protection processes and security management protect their own clients’ data.
