GDPR advice from Advantage

Advantage Travel Partnership has created and launched an assortment of information, case studies and a social media support group to educate and share advice ahead of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law commencing on May 25.

The new regulation will unify data protection for all individuals in the UK and across Europe.

David Forder, the consortium's head of marketing, said: “Due to various regulatory changes, our members are having to make significant changes to their business practices in 2018 and we are here to support them through these. From PSD2 in January to GDPR in May, we have once again created a new online content hub to provide toolkits and examples of how to become data compliant.

"Feedback from members has highlighted the need for further clarity on how the GDPR should be interpreted, and implemented. The regulation is complex, and can be translated in many ways, so we have taken steps to provide practical advice on how this relates directly to our members businesses.”

The dedicated intranet resource site for members will be updated regularly with further helpful insights, assistance and case studies covering both leisure and business travel.

The hub includes access to an online or downloadable document which gives a concentrated overview on the key parts of the GDPR that are most relevant to member’s businesses, plus gives advice on how to implement the GDPR within their own business model; An overview of questions that members have asked with replies, providing practical advice other members can follow. The online FAQ will be updated as new questions come in from members; A member case study example; Events and training details; Cyber Security and Privacy Insurance; and additional resources including a dedicated private GDPR Facebook group which all members are invited to join.
