TMA introduces GDPR Knowledge Base

TMA introduces GDPR Knowledge Base

TMA Club has unveiled a new resource for advisers that useful guides, FAQs and infographics on the topic of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The GDPR Knowledge Base online platform contains all the information advisers need to understand the regulatory changes ahead of the 25 May 25 deadline, TMA claims.

The GDPR sets out to replace the current Data Protection Act 1998 in order to bring data protection legislation into line with how data is being used, stored and shared in the modern age. All ‘controllers’ and ‘processors’ of data must be GDPR compliant to ensure personal data is processed lawfully, transparently, and for a specific purpose.

The GDPR Knowledge Base also includes practical advice from TMA’s compliance team, a number of important checklists, and links to information as outlined by the Information Commissioner’s Office.

Advisers can access the GDPR Knowledge Base here:

Lisa Martin, development director at TMA, said: “At TMA we know regulatory changes can be challenging and even a little intimidating. The GDPR is the next significant regulatory change that Directly Authorised intermediaries will face so, to help guide them through the new landscape, we have created our exclusive GDPR Knowledge Base.

“We are certain the information contained within the Knowledge Base will be of great use to our members as we continue to support them through what is set to be another year of complex regulatory change.”
