PORT.im launches free online Coronavirus privacy checkup for small businesses.

31 July 2020

London, UK; 31 July 2020. Today PORT.im, the online GDPR compliance and insurance protection platform, introduces a Coronavirus Privacy Checkup for small businesses. The smart checkup aims to inform businesses how to manage personal data during the current pandemic.

With the introduction of new working practices to deal with COVID-19, personal data has been catapulted into the centre of day-to-day operations for many small businesses. Whether it’s monitoring the health of employees or taking the contact details of customers, managing personal data is now the new reality for most organisations.

Personal data brings with it a whole heap of associated risks. The data has to be handled securely and must be managed in line with the GDPR. Even though the regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), has stated that it will be more relaxed about compliance during the pandemic, the way businesses manage the data of their customers either builds or damages trust and hence trade.

PORT.im’s Privacy Checkup is an instant stress relief for companies handling personal data. The service is online, takes about two minutes to complete and is free to use. The Checkup comprises a number of questions and delivers customised results specifically tailored to each organisation.

Julian Saunders, CEO, PORT.im said: Many businesses have had to change and adapt the way they work to find new ways to operate effectively under these pandemics conditions. For most, this means managing increased amounts of personal information, including contact details and health data. But people don’t have the time to become a GDPR expert so we’ve made it easy for them with the free Coronavirus Privacy Checkup. We hope it helps as many businesses as possible overcome the risks of managing personal information during these difficult times for all.

About PORT.im

PORT.im is the revolutionary new end-to-end privacy platform that’s fixing privacy for businesses and people.

Privacy is broken for businesses and people. It’s broken at the compliance level and at the privacy policy level. Privacy compliance is difficult for businesses to achieve. The regulations are demanding and the documentation technical, and yet every business that manages personal information is expected to comply. For people, privacy policies are pages of small print and full of legalese. They are difficult to understand and do nothing to assist the reader in trusting the company.

PORT.im has addressed these problems with their revolutionary platform, Privacy Centre. Privacy Centre makes privacy compliance a practical reality and it builds trust with customers by automatically creating an online privacy portal that is dynamically connected to a suite of compliance tools.

PORT.im Privacy Centre customers benefit from simple to manage privacy compliance and increased brand trust.
