For all organisations in the UK that are concerned with the care of others, GDPR is going to have an impact on how personal information is stored, retained and managed.
You should ask yourself a few questions to establish whether you should consider a change to the way you store data.
If you are a data controller and you store personal information, you can make your GDPR planning an awful lot simpler by asking a professional, experienced data processing company to manage the processing and storage for you.
