Start a Checklist - Getting Underway with GDPR

If you're still worried about how to start your GDPR compliance journey, don't worry, you're not alone.
As with any new legislation there's a lot to digest, and it can be tricky to work out what exactly applies to you; there's so much information and fake news around (and buckets of scary stories and hype) that the situation is more confusing than helpful. Working out what YOU should be doing from all this information requires infinite patience and limitless concentration.
We've been thinking hard about how to make it easier; breaking it down into a few small steps. Here's the first:
One Small Step
List all the places that may contain personal data in your organisation. Think about:
- software on your computers or server
- apps and online services (like MailChimp, Google Docs, your website, etc.)
- file stores and storage devices (e.g. your server or computers)
- plus "offline" storage like filing cabinets, folders, and archives.
Write them all down and whenever you come across a new one, or remember one you'd forgotten (usually when they request a service renewal) then add it to your list.

OK. That's it. Step One is done. Congratulations! You're off the start line and on your way to GDPR compliance.
