Bridging GDPR Gap

Bridging GDPR Gap

Organizations across the world are preparing for GDPR coming into force May 2018.

GDPR offers new challenges for businesses and data protection. It extends beyond technology; it’s about people, processes, culture and law which means business knowledge and relationships, combined with our best-of-breed technologies, through leadership and associated support, position you to bridge the GDPR gap, between where your business is presently and where it needs to be by May 2018 and beyond.

Are you tired of hearing about the threat of fines and you are looking for expert advice and practical steps you can take quickly to ensure GDPR Compliance for your business? Then you need to take Four Essential Questions

1. Do you know what data you hold for the data subjects, who has access to it and for what purposes?

The answer to this question might appear very easy in first look but you need to dive deeper. Data is generally spread across organizations and if your organization is using diverse IT systems the chances are that the data is present on desktops and laptops and in Excel, PowerPoint and Word documents. Is all the data accounted for?

Do you as a business organization have a clear and mapped out understanding of what data is your team or employees are in possession of and who has how much control and for what purpose exactly. This is where things begin to get complex.

Are you not sure how to get started? Our software and our expertise could make all the difference, as we guide you, step by step in creating and implementing data protection and maintenance policies.

2. Do you know where all your in-scope data resides?

Do you know which data falls within the scope of GDPR. Actually, it’s not just your customer’s data but it could be about your employees, contractors, recruitment partners and other third parties also. It’s essentially the ‘people data’ which is generally in large volumes for many organizations. But finding all off the data manually can be a cumbersome, time consuming, erroneous and hence risking. Our team at GDPR Data Safe have created the technology based on their expertise and experience which can help you automate the data discovery process that is both quick to implement and comprehensive.

3. Do you have an established way to manage consents and data rights?

If your business plans to hold personal data and process it then you are required to ask your customers for their consent that is unambiguous. You need to clearly state to your customers the personal information you are collecting from them and what the purpose you are going to use that information for. Does your organization have a subscribe/consent system in place already but it’s unlikely to be good enough for GDPR? Are you properly and clearly capturing, managing and distributing consents across channels and business units. You are legally required to prove that you have your customers consent before you can actually process their data.

GDPR Data Safe offers an efficient solution to capture, manage and keep auditable trails of customer consents that can help your business rapidly construct a solution to help manage consent data and respond to data rights.

4. Do you know how you will protect your data and apply the appropriate controls?

Do you really understand GDPR data protection? It is more than the but obvious perimeter-level security, firewalls and antivirus. It goes deep inside where the data moves around. Does your organization have the necessary control over data and do you protect it? Most businesses don’t know they need a solution in this area.

Our platform can help you rapidly implement data security and masking solutions.

Organizations in EU are well aware of what is GDPR and have already started building their compliance roadmaps. In Britain, many businesses are still catching up and do not completely understand GDPR and its effects on their business.
