How To Be GDPR Compliant

Have you noticed all the updates to privacy policies and terms and conditions on the websites you visit? You may have thought it had something to do with the Cambridge Analytica debacle on Facebook but though the topics are similar, it’s simply a coincidence in timing.

My estate manager knows where this document is on my computer (it’s not on the cloud) and how to access it for when I pass away.

Take a look at this blog I wrote about other ways you can protect your business and assets. #legacymanagement
