Social care organisations hold a significant amount of personal information relating to individuals, whether they be employees, people who need care and support or other customers or suppliers. A proportion of that data is likely to constitute sensitive personal data or “special categories of data” (including for example, medical records, religious beliefs or ethnic origin).
From 25 May 2018 all organisations that process personal data have been required to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Penalties for failure to comply, including fines, are significant.
