GDPR Compliance

Gigacycle > Services > GDPR Compliance


Since the EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) came into legislation before Brexit, the UK still has to adopt the EU GDPR and adapt it for use within the UK. The GDPR is now part of UK legislation but will not be enforceable until 2018. Some companies are now being proactive about the GDPR and are taking preventative measure now to ensure they are compliant by 2018, however a lot of companies are still turning a blind eye and will remain reactive to the GDPR.

Data disposal and erasure is a major part of the GDPR. Under the GDPR Gigacycle is registered with the ICO as a Data Processor. This means we’re qualified to handle and erase your data under the GDPR. Data Controllers are companies like yours that initially produce the data. Under the GDPR Data Controllers must have written agreements with Data Processors to ensure disposal and erasure of data is as secure as possible.

At Gigacycle we’re offering to provide a free health check or audit of your current end-of-life data processes and will provide you with a detailed SWOT analysis and project plan for achieving GDPR compliance.


The GDPR presents a perfect opportunity for organisations to understand their key risks and embed privacy driven design principles into computer recycling, data disposal and erasure.


We have split our services into five focus areas to help you at the stages of your Data Protection Act (DPA) and GDPR compliance readiness process that are relevant to I.T asset disposition.
