GDPR Compliance

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is enforceable from May 25th 2018

General Data Protection Regulation

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is enforceable from May 25th, 2018. It will immediately become automatically binding and applicable from this date so those affected should already have their plan for fully compliant Data Protection in place.

The GDPR imposes new obligations on organisations that control or process relevant personal data, introducing new rights and protections for EU data subjects. It applies in the European Union (EU) and requires no in-country legislation but any organisation processing data of EU subjects, whether located in the EU or not, are bound by GDPR.

VIA have always placed a high emphasis on Data Protection from the outset. As such, privacy-by-default is built into everything we do so we are fully prepared to implement the incoming legislation. Since 2016, VIA have been ISO-27001 accredited and regularly inspected to ensure our data is secure. We also undertake non-required security assessments, such as regular penetration testing, physical and virtual, and social engagement testing. Furthermore, all of our employees have regular Data Protection training and refresher training to keep them up-to-date with the latest security measures.

For the most part, VIA has already been assessed to be compliant to the new regulation. As part of our journey towards complete compliance prior to May 2018, our implementation programme includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Customer Contracts will be updated to be more clear and precise.
  • Staff Training will be stepped up to ensure all colleagues are up-to-date with best security practices.
  • Supplier relationships will be reviewed, and contracts updated to comply with data processor and sub processor relationships.
  • ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) best practices will be reviewed and implemented.
  • Our data inventory will be assessed and reviewed.

With the regulation coming into practice so soon, VIA is here to answer any questions you may have about how GDPR may affect your data processes. Connect with us through our Live Chat or contact us today.


We will contact you to arrange a 15 minute demo.
