A comprehensive solution to aid organisations in complying with GDPR

LONDON -- Seers Group, a global leader in B2B privacy management software helps organisations complying with EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR) and ePrivacy regulation announce the launch of its fourth product.

Seers launched FREE GDPR Audit, Cyber Secure and Cookie X-Ray earlier in 2018.

Organisations must legally comply with the Privacy Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR) or risk massive fines of up to £500,000.

Both the new GDPR Legislation and PECR regulations cover all forms of Marketing.

An organisation sending either marketing emails, faxing, cold calling or sending SMS broadcasts may be breaking the law. Seers PECR Audit is a great way to see how the regulation applies to an organisation and identify critical high risk or weak areas.

The Seers tools are fully integrated into the comprehensive Seers privacy management platform, one of the world’s best technologies used to support and implement a GDPR-based privacy program.

Seers new solutions are developed keeping SME's requirements in mind. It's for the businesses who are looking for affordable and easy to use tech solutions to assist them in complying.

Marketing is now a legal minefield. PECR Audit makes it easy to comply”, said, Seers
Group CEO, Adnan Zaheer

The GDPR came into effect on 25 May 2018, and outlines data subject rights for EU customers and employees:

Non-compliance and infringements of data subject rights trigger the highest tier of administrative fines in the GDPR – up to 4% global revenue, or EUR 20M.

Perhaps more concerning is that data subjects are granted the right to seek compensation for damages suffered (Art 82; Rec 146), which is why many regulators and industry experts expect the new
regulations to lead to an increased risk of class action lawsuits and brand/reputation damage if companies fail to properly meet the rights of data subjects.

As consumers become more aware of data privacy rights, under GDPR, organisations are highly anticipated to adopt best practices and comply with the regulation said Martyn Ripley, Seers Group Compliance Officer.

Seers solutions provide a wider range of assistance to SMEs and assist them in compliance. Seers Advisors platform has hundreds of advisors and helps companies to find the right advisors.
