Personal data security for pension scheme trustees

4 July 2017

Cybersecurity and protection of personal data are increasingly to the forefront of concerns for pension trustees. The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), applicable in the UK from 2018, will impose additional requirements on trustees and other data controllers.

Security issues arising out of pension trustees' own use of data and confidential information are often overlooked. These issues can be different from those affecting pension managers or other pension professionals. This note focuses on security concerns from the personal perspective of individual trustees (or individual directors of a corporate trustee) and recommends steps trustees can take to protect themselves.

In this note, we use the term "trustee" to refer to an individual trustee or director of a corporate trustee.
