About GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25th May 2018

Are Hosting UK GDPR compliant or do Hosting UK have measures in place to become GDPR compliant in time for May when GDPR comes into effect?

Hosting UK is a company within the Iomart PLC group of companies and as such our compliance is is part of the larger iomart project. GDPR compliance cannot be “certified” since there is no certification process as such. Compliance with data protection laws and regulations is not a binary exercise, where an organisation is either "compliant" or "non-compliant".

As you will be aware, the GDPR is an EU-wide set of regulations, which sets out the respective responsibilities of Controllers and Processors in relation to Personal Data and Special Categories of Personal Data (broadly being Sensitive Personal Data under the current Data Protection Act 1998). If a client decides to maintain Personal Data / Special Categories of Personal Data on their hosted iomart environment then they will need to ensure that they are complying with their responsibilities as Controllers (both under the current Data Protection Act 1998, and under the GDPR once it applies).

We would encourage our clients to review this document to gain an insight into where they are with the process.

The GDPR introduces new, direct statutory obligations on Processors for the first time. Iomart, as a Processor in providing cloud services to its clients, takes its legal responsibilities very seriously, and is currently undertaking a full audit of its business with respect to its own responsibilities under GDPR. Of course, clients must still ensure that they are meeting their responsibilities as Controllers, and to that end, iomart would encourage all clients to carry out their own audits with respect to the Personal Data they are responsible for (including any Personal Data hosted on iomart environments). 

Our initial audit is now complete and iomart group are reviewing a small number of remedies to ensure that we as a business are compliant with the requirements of the GDPR before 25th May 2018. The addition of GDPR compliance adds to our already market leading list of accreditations full details of which can be found here:
