GDPR is now in force!

How GDPR Affects Your Paper Documents

In May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force throughout Europe and will replace the UK’s current Data Protection Act.

The GDPR will have a major impact on the way data is managed and steps should be taken to make sure you comply.

The consequences of failing to adhere to the GDPR are not to be ignored.

Data protection regulators will have the powers to impose fines up to €20,000,000 or 4% of a company’s total worldwide annual turnover, it is therefore important to employ the standards set out.

Even though GDPR is designed for cyber-attacks and data storage, paper documents are as important to the safeguard of your companies’ data.

AMS have been specialists in converting paper files for over 40 years and are best placed to advise you of the best ways to comply with GDPR for when it comes in to force in 2018.

  • HR files
