Getting ready for the GDPR


Assessing pension scheme data – the questions trustees need to ask

Introduction

With under 12 months to go until the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25 May 2018, the clock is ticking loudly for all organisations holding and processing personal data relating to individuals.

This checklist (PDF), the first in a series, sets out key questions and actions that trustees of occupational pension schemes should be addressing now to assess the personal data they hold.

In this briefing:

  • Data protection principles
  • Lawful basis for processing
  • New consent requirements
  • Children’s personal data
  • Sensitive personal data
  • Key GDPR changes.

Trustees can complete the information themselves or, for assistance, please get in touch with your usual Sackers contact or a member of our data protection team at: dataprotection@sackers.com
