On the 25th May 2018, the EU will make the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) effective in the UK. This will also mean a new Data Protection Act (DPA) that will accompany GDPR. The GDPR has been designed with the future and the digital age in mind with the aim of giving more consumers more access and protection for their personal data.
At Swift Digital Solutions we promise to ensure security and protection of client personal information that we collect and process and to provide a compliant approach to data protection.
We at Swift Digital Solutions have always followed the data protection laws, however, we understand the importance and necessity of updating the current program in place to meet the new regulation of GDPR and the UK law.

Secondly, Swift Digital Solutions has reviewed our policies including but not limited to: Information security policy and Data security policy and updated them to keep in accordance with the new GDPR regulation changes.
