#FITforGDPR

GDPR will require strength at the core of your business

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) looms just over the horizon. Intended to improve personal data protections and increase accountability for data breaches, it is perhaps the most comprehensive data privacy standard to date. It brings with it the potential for crippling fines of up to 4% of annual turnover or 20 million euros (whichever is greater). The regulation presents a significant challenge for organisations that process the personal data of EU citizens, regardless of where the organisation is headquartered.

Is your business fit for the challenge?

The countdown is on for GDPR compliance by May 2018

Getting Fit For GDPR

ASSESS YOUR READINESS

The question, “Are you fit for GDPR?” is a complex one with many aspects to consider.

Among the many concerns:

  • Do you understand the risks to the systems where personal data is processed?
  • Are you prepared to respond to a breach in accordance with Articles 33 and 34?
  • Can you respond to a data subject’s request to ‘be forgotten’?
  • Less than a third of companies (31%) are prepared for the GDPR

HAVE A PLAN AND STICK TO IT

If you have checked your compliance and audited your data, you should know what you process, on what legal grounds, who has access and understand the lifecycle of captured personal data. You are past some of the most challenging stages. The next step is to implement data protection by design, and by default.

Key requirements:

  • Policy, Process and Procedure documentation
  • Incident Response/Breach notification response plan
  • Legal documents (including: consent, data processing agreements & contracts)
  • Technical measures implementation
