gdpr complianceWe’re almost there with our GDPR compliance.

After four months of hard work, we have just about completed our GDPR compliance targets.

The good news is for Envision Training that we hold very little information on our clients – only the data that we really need so that we can place delegates on training courses.

This information is usually just a name, company and a contact email, it can occasionally include dietary requirements too. Under the Data Protection Act, this information wouldn’t have been regarded as sensitive, or personal.

However under the new GDPR, holding someone’s name alongside their email address or company name means that they could be identified, so this makes the data we hold ‘personal’, which means we have to be even more careful with it.

Here at Envision Training, we really value our clients, and we take privacy very seriously. So, while we hold minimal data on secure servers, we are taking it one step further. By 25th May we will have:

  • Completed a full data audit and destroyed out of date records
  • Encrypted all data files which are held on our secure server
  • Established a process for exchanging business critical data with our clients and suppliers
  • Updated all of our policies and procedures which relate to Data Protection
  • Have all staff trained in how the GDPR affects them and how they interact with customer data
  • Updated all forms to tell recipients of how we use and store their data
  • A signed commitment to the GDPR from all of our suppliers.

So, if you’re a supplier, please make sure you have signed and returned the agreement that you’ve received from us. If you’re a client, you can be confident that your data is safe with us.

If you are unsure of how the GDPR affects your business, or if you need to get up to speed quickly, get in touch with our friendly experts who can find the right training course for you! Call us on 0115 8705075 or email trainingteam@envisiontraining.co.uk.
