GDPR for CCTV

 

As the 25th May deadline looms many companies in the security industry will have no idea of what is expected of them with GDPR. It’s not just security companies like GuardHome that have to be prepared for GDPR when it comes to CCTV but also any busines that owns a CCTV camera.

We recommend any business operating CCTV to be registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). Any business with CCTV will have to have a clear warning notice to anyone in range of their surveillance footage. This is the case because footage of an individual falls under the banner of their personal data.

What may not be as clear, is the fact that a Ring video doorbell also counts as CCTV. Therefore any business using this kind of system will also be subject to the same requirements.
