GDPR: Practical guidance for pension schemes
All pension schemes within the EU are now subject to GDPR, which has replaced the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA). Even after Brexit, GDPR will continue to apply as it will be incorporated into UK law supplemented by the Data Protection Bill that will replace the DPA. It is therefore necessary to act as soon as possible to ensure compliance and avoid the new potentially higher fines for breaches.
Helping you to achieve compliance
Key changes under GDPR include the need to demonstrate compliance, changes to the rights of individuals including the right to be forgotten and new rules around obtaining consent and processing data.
To help you to understand the changes and new measures, we have developed both an ‘at a glance’ guide to GDPR for pension trustees for a high-level summary, as well as a more in-depth guide, both of which are available for download below.
