We know what it feels like to worry you’re not doing the right thing
That’s why we set out to make it easy to get it right
How much can getting it wrong cost you?
Non-compliance with data privacy laws like GDPR can be costly. Under UK GDPR, a fine can be issued of up of up to £17.5 million or 4% of the organisation’s worldwide annual turnover, whichever is higher.
There’s no greater buzzkill than a regulatory authority like the ICO turning up to your door to audit your processes, or in response to complaints.
3. Personal liability
It’s not just the company as a legal entity that can get into trouble. Individuals within the company can find themselves personally liable to be prosecuted for negligence under the Data Protection Act whether they committed the offence themselves, or they were negligent in a supervisory role.
4. Reputation damage
It’s hard for customers and prospective employees to trust your brand when the first thing they find about you in Google is news about your latest data breach. And if you end up moving on to a new role, you’ll need to be prepared for some awkward interview questions.
5. Losing out on investment
Investors can include data privacy law compliance as part of their due-dil, or as a bargaining chip. After all, how much is your business really worth if the customers on your database aren’t even legally contactable?
6. Failing supplier due-dil
Large companies often include data privacy law compliance as part of their procurement due-dil. If you can’t complete the paperwork, they can’t be your customer.
7. Ethics and moral compass
Respecting the right of your customers, suppliers and employees to privacy is the right thing to do. We can all learn how to use data responsibly whilst still getting results.
8. Data deletion orders
If you are caught for non-compliance you may be ordered to delete data which was not properly acquired or processed. Similarly, applying data protection law retrospectively may oblige you to delete valuable data such as customer databases.
