The General Data Protection Regulations [GDPR] are fast approaching – really not very long left before enforcement starts. So how can SMEs be ready for 25th of May? This is a pretty tricky question! Here are a few good sources of information. Hope this helps.

1. The ICO website and Helpline are the best place to start - the 12 Step plan and Checklists are worth reading.

2. Visit the Communicator web site and read the GDPR documents here – these are informative and more importantly, easy to read. This Guide to What's Coming is a great source of info.

3. The DMA has a set of guides – this is a fantastic resource! You will definitely get hung up on the use of Legitimate Interest and the DMA provides lots of guidance in this area.

4. You can of course continue reading more blogs on Optindigo – we also provide a free online task manager that gives you a list of the tasks you have to complete and the documentation you might need.

5. There is a useful document on how to record Processing Activity provided by Bitkom. – this is a complex area and this document helps you understand your responsibility. Worth a look.
