Compliance and Guidance

General Data Protection Regulation

The ABI is collating useful resources and presentations on this subject to assist members in the preparation for GDPR and compliance thereafter.

When personal data is involved in an investigation or other litigation support, GDPR compels professional clients to engage a service provider of the calibre found in The ABI membership:

Information Commissioner’s Guide - "What responsibilities does a controller have when choosing a processor? You have a responsibility to check that your processor is competent to process the personal data in accordance with all the requirements of the GDPR. Your assessment should take into account the nature of the processing and the risks to the data subjects. This is because Article 28.1 says that you must only use a processor that can provide 'sufficient guarantees' in terms of its resources and expertise, to implement technical and organisational measures to comply with the GDPR and protect the rights of data subjects.”

The ABI provides its members with training in GDPR compliance.
