GDPR – 50 days to go

What do Agnetha from Abba, actors Spencer Tracy, Bette Davis, Gregory Peck and GDPR have in common?

25 May is their big day!

In just 50 days, on 25 May 2018, GDPR is officially born and compliance with this new piece of legislation is a must.  It’s fairly complicated legislation – but as far as data handling is concerned, it makes complete sense.  Optician practices have always handled personal data so it should be standard that this is safely processed, handled, deleted when requested (or no longer relevant) and securely stored.

Ideally your data should be stored off site in the event of practice fire, flood or other disaster (and sadly they do happen).  It is also important that your data is stored in the UK for NHS clinical audit compliance.

If you choose our Replicate Retina data backup, you can rest assured that your data is backed up and stored safely.  If your customer details need removing from your data records then we can help you to achieve this, no problem.

If you want to learn more about GDPR, please do come to say hello to us and ask your questions at Optrafair.  We will be on the Topcon stands and happy to chat and help address any concerns you have.
