The General Data Protection Regulation  or the “GDPR” as it is more commonly known, is to be welcomed as an important upgrade of privacy law.  At the same time, however, there is little doubt that the GDPR makes compliance around the use of personal information more onerous for businesses. 

Consular.com is well-placed to help provide the necessary reassurance you need to satisfy the GDPR around your potential use of us a supplier (a ‘processor’ under the GDPR) for several reasons:

  • We have been independently assessed as having met the government’s Cyber Essentials Plus standard.  By using us as you can be confident you have met the requirement to have obtained “sufficient guarantees” around the cyber security of a supplier (from Article 28(1) of the GDPR) 
  • we have ready-to-implement GDPR processing contracts(as required by Article 28(3) of the GDPR) and
  • we have undertaken our own bespoke in-house GDPR compliance programme
