A new dawn for data privacy in the EU

As the UK severs its ties with the EU, much has been made of what happens to the GDPR – the General Data Protection Regulation.

The EU act came into effect in May 2018, forcing organisations who hold personal data about European Union citizens to take steps to protect it – or risk breaking the law.

Following Brexit, the UK’s transition period to leave the EU ended on December 31, 2020. But that is not the end of the story in terms of data protection.

We have written extensively about the changes in our blog piece, “How does Brexit affect the GDPR?”. This provides vital advice to organisations in the EU, the UK and elsewhere in the world.

Version 7 of the GDPR Toolkit

We have also made a series of updates to our award-winning GDPR toolkit, which was originally launched in 2017 and has sold thousands of copies in dozens of nations. Our latest version is the seventh.

A number of changes have been made to cater for Brexit and the deal reached between the EU and the UK in December. For instance, some examples have been tailored to no longer relate to the UK.

And references to the EU-US Privacy Shield have been removed, and the advice clarified, as a result of the Schrems II judgement.

What else is new?

Other updates include the following:

  • Flowcharts previously designed in Microsoft Visio replaced with editable versions in Word.
  • Dashboards added to key spreadsheets, including the Project Plan and Gap Assessment.
  • New example letters added for actions such as data subject request rejection, time extension and charging.
  • Forms redesigned.
  • Presentation slides updated to cater for Schrems II and Brexit.
  • European Data Protection Board guidelines refreshed with new and latest versions.

‘Exciting time’ for data protection

CertiKit managing director Ken Holmes said the Schrems II and Brexit changes had led to “an exciting time for European data protection”.

He added: “At CertiKit, we’re working hard to ensure that our toolkits stay current and take account of the changing political and legal situations.

“Our latest version of the GDPR toolkit explains what amendments existing customers may need to make to their data protection regime. It also clarifies the situation for new customers.

“We have also taken notice of some of the helpful suggestions for enhancement made by our extensive customer base, with a number of new documents and updates to existing ones.”

Five-star reviews from customers

As always, it is what our customers think that really matters. Among their comments were these five-star reviews from the past few months:

“I bought the kit in my previous company and used it for GDPR implementation. It saved an awful lot of time and was well worth the money. When I joined a new company recently, and their documentation was not up to scratch, I knew just where to go.” Anon

“[The toolkit] enables you to produce a comprehensive and standardised document set that saves hours of time, with structure and cross-referencing. The template design provides for a good-quality starting point.” Anon

“This great resource has saved us from [reinventing] the wheel over and over. In addition, the company is available to help with the basic questions all of us have when deploying GDPR.” Dario Valori
