GDPR is coming into force later this month (25th May 2018), while you’re preparing your company for the change, is your website ready?
You might think that you’re not collecting any data on your website, but think again. If you’re using Google Analytics, retargeting software, a contact/enquiry form or an online payment gateway, then you need to make some changes to become compliant.
To get your website ready with the new GDPR regulations taking effect on 25th May 2018, the following are essentials to add or update on your site:
- Cookie Notice
- SSL Certificate
GDPR compliance will not only stop you from facing hefty fines (up to €10 million or 2% of the company’s global annual turnover, whichever is greater) but will also help keep your user data safe, protect your organisation, secure against potential threats and limit the impact of data breaches.

Take a look at the green padlock next to our web address, that’s an SSL Certificate. It encrypts data communication between the server and the user.
An SSL is also highly beneficial for SEO, meaning if you don’t have one, your website will struggle to appear in Google’s search results.
We can add an SSL certificate to your website to keep your data encrypted.
If you do not have one, and would like our team to put one together, we will require some information about your company. We can send you a form to fill out to get this information. If we built your website, we will know what information is collected, but we will need you to tell us how you use this data.
