Getting up to speed and making sure your data bearing assets like old computers and confidential waste paper are disposed of correctly can seem like a minefield. Take a deep breath and let us break down the requirements for you.
GDPR Compliance And Computer Disposal
What do I need to ensure my data is disposed of in the right way to achieve GDPR compliance?
The new regulations focus on internal processes and risks and how these contributing factors are documented and assessed. Making sure you have a compliant asset disposal company acting as your data processor is crucial to avoiding risks with your data. GDPR requires that data processors must:
- Have a detailed service agreement with the data controller
- Provide sufficient guarantees, in terms of expert knowledge and ability to deliver the service; including appropriate technical and organisational measures
- Adhere to an approved code of conduct
- Adhere to an approved certification mechanism
- Regularly test, assess and evaluate the effectiveness of their measures to ensure the security of processing
- Be dedicated to notifying the controller without undue delay after becoming aware of a personal data breach
If your current data processor has not guided you through this process, don’t worry; contact AssetCare and we will make sure you are covered. In response to the changing landscape of data protection AssetCare have launched the Data Compliance Scheme giving our clients the peace of mind that their asset disposal process and provider are compliant with the latest regulatory demands.
