The General Data Protection Regulation is set to be introduced by the EU on the 24th May 2018. It's an important step forward in extending the privacy rights granted to EU individuals, and places many new obligations on organisations that process EU personal data, regardless of which country they are in.
Foster is committed to complying GDPR and it's principals therein.
Foster would like to assure our staff, partners, customers and stakeholders that we are committed to GDPR compliance are are already taking steps to become compliant.
We have analysed the requirements of GDPR and are enhancing our processes, controls and documentation where needed, to ensure compliance with GDPR. Foster have embedded the principle of privacy first into our working culture, understanding that all our users are data subjects, and that protecting their data is paramount. Strong encryption and fine grain access control are key techniques that assure our customers that their data, specifically user data, is secure.
We are well underway with further enhancements including consent management user journeys for authentication and data portability for subject requests. In the coming months we will release further information on how we are aligning our business to GDPR.
Please contact us if you have any questions on the subject.
