Greetings from chilly Bristol, AWeb members.
At our event back in November, I got chatting with a small firm owner (who shall remain anonymous ). They told me that since the last lockdown lifted, they have insisted on staff working in the office at all times for 'GDPR reasons'. They justified this by stating that they handle sensitive client documents and wouldn't want them viewed by others outside the firm. I don't doubt for a second the sensitive part is true, but there are plenty of firms that work remotely, look at client documentation on mobiles etc. Has my firm-owner friend taken a very literal interpretation of GDPR? Misunderstood the regulation? Or were maybe having me on? Thoughts welcome as always :-)
All the best,
