Let it go: Why GDPR is making people think about how long they retain their physical records

An important element in the new European GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) is a focus on ensuring that companies, businesses and organisations of all sizes do not retain data regarding their clients any longer than necessary. Whilst the old UK Data Protection Act gave some attention to this concern, the new Europe-wide regulations have a much bigger focus on preventing the retention of client records for longer than necessary – with a stringent level of fines for those who take this less than seriously.

For those who don’t operate an information management system at present, it’s a good idea to start thinking about how long you need to keep your stored data for, as well as a proper review and destruction dates. The new GDPR sets out some very specific requirements for this.
