It's been six months since GDPR came into force and threatened organisations with fines of £millions, and we have found over 95% of the 100+ sites we’ve looked at fail to meet basic GDPR requirements!
Sites still aren’t secure - they are not running up-to-date software, don’t have the required policies or notifications around consent or data deletion.
The DIY website builders failed to meet the GDPR requirements - we’re not sure whether they can't be configured appropriately or that self-builders don't know what they need to do, or even if they do, whether they know how to do it.
On other hand, it appears that few web developers know what they have to do with regards to GDPR for themselves, (check their sites), let alone what they need to do for their clients!
It doesn’t have to be expensive to fix, but I’m sure you wouldn’t choose to drink and drive, so why invite the wrath of the Information Commissioner and massive fines? Our recommendation is to start asking questions now. Start with your developer and see what they say.
