What are Information Asset Registers (IAR)?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in May 2018, and carries with it the threat of a £17m for serious data breaches.

An (IAR) is a simple way to help you identify and manage your organisation’s information assets – and the risks to them.

Information is valuable. So, you should know and fully understand what information your organisation holds. This will help you to protect the information and exploit its potential.

Under the  General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018, the law will need you to evidence how your organisation processes personal data, from collection to disposal.
