General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and Technical Publications (Part 2)

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) are now in force within the European Union with already reports that some organisations are already being investigated for not being fully compliant. We have all seen the massive noise around GDPR, we have all been asked multiple times to resubscribe, reconfirm or accept updated privacy policies – the internet has been awash with all sorts of noise! Technical Publications and the nature of what we do may just also be something we should be considering in a GDPR context. If we are selling, managing and deploying technical publications, GDPR will have an affect on what we should be considering from a GDPR perspective.

In Part 2 we look at how these regulations may affect us in technical publication distribution and deployment, what are the sort of things we should be looking out for and what are some organisations doing (as well as ignoring) to meet the requirements of GDPR.

Mike Ingledew

A trained aircraft engineer (rotorcraft), I entered in to the field of technical information writing S1000D data modules on a major European military platform.

After a series of high profile project roles and the privilege of supporting clients worldwide, I ended my 'employed' career at a subsidiary of Boeing Aircraft after I decided to leave and focus on TDW full-time.

From my time supporting clients worldwide, I could see that there was a market need for an independent organisation that could be a trusted advisory source for those needing to implement successful technical information strategies.

I am passionate about the art of technical communications and the process, software and skills needed in our market.
