The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) - IFAC’s approach

GDPR tightens Data Protection rules for data controllers and data processors in handling personal information and directly enforceable obligations are imposed on them.

The GDPR also requires that clauses are built into contracts between controllers and processors. (“C2P Clauses”). It alters the rules regarding obtaining consent, and places accountability on firms to ensure they are treating data subjects in a fair and transparent manner. Data policies and statements will need to be granular and clear, and not blurred by complex and technical language.

IFAC take the steps to GDPR seriously and have designed an interactive course for members and non-members alike with a dedicated microsite for compliant data-harvesting and staff awareness.

We will steer your company to GDPR awareness, data cleansing and processes implementation that follow the relevant data privacy regulations
