MEC established the SCWG to identify common solutions to ensure the secure transfer of data between individual parties in meeting their obligations under the MRA and SPAA.
Industry identified disparities in the techniques currently used to ensure personal data is sent between parties securely, particularly following the implementation of GDPR. Differences in practices employed have led to operational inefficiencies and inconsistencies in security standards resulting in challenges managing the transfer of personal data, fundamental to industry processes.
SCWG has published an Invitation to Tender for potential solution providers, to identify a standard process for the secure transfer of personal data between industry parties. Responses to the ITT are invited before 14th December 2018. Any questions relating to the ITT should be sent to MRAHelpdesk@gemserv.com in line with the process set out within the ITT.
