We’re working hard to ensure we meet all the obligations around GDPR and data security generally.  Nothing is more important to us than keeping customer data safe, so we’ve put together some information on how we’re responding to this new legislation.

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on 25th May 2018, effectively replacing the UK current Data Protection Act by the Information Commissioners Office (ICO).

GDPR is a more comprehensive regulation than anything to date. It directly effects all organisations that control or process individual data.

CogniSoft and GDPR

CogniSoft are both a controller and a processor of data. We control data on behalf of our employees and business contacts, but to a greater quantity we process data on millions of individuals on behalf of customers through our hosting, support and consultancy services.

Therefore, GDPR directly affects CogniSoft’s procedures and policies.

How we’re complying with GDPR

CogniSoft is now in the process of incorporating specific GDPR updates to the policies and procedures of the ISO27001 information security management system certification we’ve held since April 2011.

Further information will be posted here, therefore please bookmark this page and refer back to it periodically to stay informed on how we will adapt to this important legislation or sign up to our newsletters to receive regular updates.
