Transport & Logistics

The road to compliance

Companies within the Transport and Logistics industry collect sensitive data from both customers, drivers, consultants and suppliers. This information has a tendency to accumulate in folders and systems where it is unprotected. In order to comply with the privacy regulations and process sensitive data properly, it is necessary to have control over this information. It is a complex task and it can quickly become an administrative nightmare.

Here are your sensitive data

Having worked with a number of transport and logistics companies, we know that the sensitive data you have is typically:

  • Contact information and photo
  • Driver’s license
  • Trade Union membership
  • Work and educational history
  • Payroll and compensation
  • Information about insurances and benefits
  • Criminal records
  • Health and vaccine status
  • Information of customers and suppliers

You may already have IT systems in place to process sensitive data. But are you sure that your systems are up-to-date when it comes to handling sensitive data? We also experience that many transport and logistics companies have problems with sensitive data continuing to enter outside the secure systems. The processing errors that are typically committed within your industry are that you send and receive sensitive data unencrypted, you do not delete sensitive data that is no longer relevant to have, and you forget to obtain consent to store sensitive data.
