Why Data Protection Matters - with Adrian Dray

In this week's show, Brad talks to Adrian Dray, a data protection expert and consultant, about why data protection matters, the role of GDPR in every dental business practice, and how we can better maintain the security of our client base. KEY TAKEAWAYS GDPR was the biggest data protection shake-up in a generation, and before it was implemented, not many business owners took client security seriously. When looking to take over a new practice, or acquire a business, the GDPR compliance must be thoroughly considered. We must make sure that we're not acquiring a business filled with breaches and problems. We must make sure that we are keeping client information in the most secure way, and crucially, disposing of it when the correct time arrives. This is an issue that many businesses slip up on. It is a criminal offence to block or deliberately disrupt the legal process when it comes to the information process, and perpetrators of this violation are now being publicly called out. BEST MOMENTS 'As dentists, we understand the importance of what we do' 'One of the things that's really important is how's it going to interact the value of my business?' 'I don't want to pick up a "data lemon"' 'Those records could be your bulletproof vest...'
