Directors beware – They are coming for you!

It maybe the season of goodwill but that hasn’t stopped the ICO making further changes to Privacy legislation that will pour more misery on Company Directors.

As of the 17th December, Directors will be personally liable for nuisance marketing activity and could be forced to pay up to £500,000. Under changes to the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PeCR), the regulator is cracking down on Company’s who seek to avoid existing fines by winding up the Company in the face of regulatory scrutiny or monetary penalty and set up a new Co under a new name (so called ‘phoenixing’).  This change will hold Directors of Senior Officers more accountable moving forward and is hoped to further discourage poor practice.

‘Straight forward and engaging approach’

"Informative and clear, Data2Action bought the whole topic of GDPR to life and just as importantly, we recognise the value that this legislation can now bring to our organisation and clients. Adopting a straight forward and engaging approach (they) helped my team get a much clearer understanding of whats required and how we can work as a team to deliver this. Really good value for money."

‘Game changer for me and my Business’

Having already spent several months on our new CRM software we weren’t really moving forward with it. Data2Action came to our offices and made what we thought was an impossible task look so simple.

It was a breath of fresh air ... we now have a simple, mapped out plan to work on which I believe will be a game changer for me and my business.

All of this was achieved by using data, information and the abilities that we already have in our business. The trouble is we are all so busy with the daily routine we miss what is in front of our eyes , the gold dust when it comes to marketing out business.  I would have no problem recommending Data2Action to any company looking to catch up with the 21stCentury.

‘Superb presentation’

"We had an exceptional turn-out for our GDPR workshop with members of the Entrepreneurs’ Forum and Data2Action's presentation was superb – in fact we’ve had the best feedback from any event we’ve held so far this year. Data2Action gave perspective on why we’ve arrived at the new regulations, some practical, common sense advice and guidance on actions to take, whilst reassuring us all that it’s not an insurmountable task. Most importantly they did it without and jargon and answered every question from our delegates with great authority. I think everyone left the event feeling far happier that they could now tackle the changes, armed with some new knowledge and a few myths dispelled."
