As Ireland’s leading IT disposal provider, AMI has been providing secure IT retirement and electronic recycling and remarketing services since 2001. In that time we have celebrated a number of significant milestones and business achievements, from securing numerous industry accreditations and certifications to successfully running our first GDPR seminar and returning €2 million to our clients through the resale of their old IT equipment. AMI will also mark a number of additional milestones in 2018, including 10 years in business in the Republic of Ireland and 10 years of DiskShred, our on-site IT shredding service provider.
The May 25th GDPR deadline is fast approaching and is set to shake up how organisations collect and process data. To help businesses with their final preparations, AMI recently held a special GDPR lunchtime seminar in the Merchant Hotel, Belfast which was attended by more than 130 people. We’ve put together a recap of what was an informative, insightful and truly engaging event.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is set to come into force in just over a year’s time, on 25th May 2018. GDPR is one of the most important pieces of legislation to affect companies whose core business involves processing data.
Those found to be non-compliant could face fines of up to €20 million or 4% of global turnover, depending on which is greater. With such significant penalties, it’s no surprise that organisations are already working to meet the requirements outlined in the regulation.
