8/1/2018 - Insight Media's proactive approach on GDPR

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force in May 2018 and replaces the longstanding Data Protection Act.

This new regulation increases individuals’ rights on personal data and will have significant implications for councils and public sector organisations regarding the need to have consent and legitimate reasons to hold and process individuals' data. Councils, along with many other challenging situations, are potentially facing a huge task in auditing legacy data to find out where it is held and identify whether an individuals’ consent was granted correctly.

Insight Media is taking a proactive approach and will be providing additional functionality within our iCAM systems to help our customers meet GDPR compliancy.

We’ve been looking at GDPR for several months now and early in December 2017 emailed all our respective customers with outline information and our provisional plans on GDPR to help manage expectations.

We will be contacting our customers again soon with more details on the additional system functionality and timescales for GDPR implementations.
