In light of the news surrounding the UK Data Watchdog fine for Kensington and Chelsea council following the Grenfell data breach, Jon Fielding, Managing Director, EMEA at Apricorn commented below.
Jon Fielding, Managing Director, EMEA at Apricorn:
“This was obviously an honest mistake compounded by the tragic circumstances surrounding it. However, it does serve as a reminder that both public and private sector organisations must get a handle on both their data and the processes around it in advanced of GDPR compliance being enforced next month. GDPR broadens the definition of personal data whilst extending the rights that the citizens have over it and all enterprise should ensure they are ready and able to comply.”
