GDPR Creates new rights for individuals

Welcome to Darren Wray, CEO at Fifth Step offering some very great nuggets of information on the GDPR. We’ll be linking up with Fifth step over the coming months to bring you the latest industry news:

These are the key rights that a data subject can ask to be enforced. Insurance companies need a business process and the right systems in place to cope with these demands.The Right to be Informed

It is important to be specific. Informing the data subject holder that their data is held at Branch 18, for example, is not good enough: be precise if it’s in a Sheffield branch. You must be able to decode that information. The difference under GDPR is that companies can’t charge a fee for providing this information. Under the DPA companies can charge a minimal £10 fee.
