Here’s how to comply with the 2016 EU General Data Protection Regulation when disposing of ICT assets.

11th November 2016

The world of technology has advanced beyond measure since the original EU Data Protection 95/46/EC came into force way back in 1995. Back then in the land before smartphones, the ‘cloud’ was just something that blocked out the sun…

So with mind-sets to privacy evolving rapidly since those days, the new 2016 law is intended to reflect these vast changes in technology and our use of it. This in turn means that your business or organisation’s ability to demonstrate compliance with the new data protection legislation is paramount to maintain a healthy reputation and not succumb to a possibly crippling financial punishment because of a data breach

These significant changes were brought into effect from April 2016. Companies have 2 years from then, to introduce new procedures to meet the new directive.

Although created before The Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Karen Bradley MP, confirmed on Monday 24 October that the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will apply in the UK (click here for more of this), the following document explains not only how to comply with the 2016 EU General Data Protection Regulation when disposing of ICT assets, but also discusses the impact of Brexit on data protection legislation and the need for the UK to employ legislation when it comes to the disposal and ICT asset recovery once we have exited the EU.
