We will help to put your company on The Road to Privacy Compliance

The European Union’s Global Data Protection Regulation, also known as GDPR was recently passed into law by the European Union Parliament and many industry experts have described it as the most important change in data privacy regulation in the last 23 years. This development will give organizations an unparalleled understanding of their customers journey and has also made it compulsory for them to know their data privacy status and ensure compliance.

As a company, why do you need a GDPR Quickscan?

A lot has been said about the GDPR and its overall effects on the corporate world. However, after staying in transition for two years, it will become enforceable on 5/25/2018. Unlike former regulations, non-compliance with GDPR will attract heavier penalties and it is important that the business owner understands what the regulation entails and all the necessary steps to follow.

It is very important to know if your organization is susceptible to the risk of penalties. You need to understand what GDPR means and answer vital questions like: How can we start our GDPR compliance process? What are the resources and tools we need to get started? The penalties and fines are so high that you cannot afford to take chances. You also have to know if this is going to be a long-term or short-term process so you can accurately allocate some capital towards it and also set aside funds for future GDPR processes.

You will get answers to these practical questions after we carry a quickscan of your company’s GDPR compliance. We will then create a 3-part in-house GDPR Manual with the answers for you. The outline of this book will follow this special format:

Chapter 1 – Contains a Table of content of your GDPR report

Chapter 2 – Highlights the beginning of the operational process, taking into account the roles that each department will have to play. From the IT, HR and legal sections to the Sales and Marketing arms, every role will be properly documented. However, in some small businesses, this may just be two people.

Chapter 3 – Will be more of maintenance. It will address how to ensure you remain GDPR compliant, how to prepare a GDPR budget, how to regulate your resources, how to modify your internal structures and how your customer service team should respond to clients’ questions. Generally, this part encompasses how to tailor your every operation to accommodate GDPR.

Our Process?

One of our GDPR specialists will come to your company for a general assessment and consultation. For small businesses, this usually lasts a few hours. This will be an open-ended and interactive session where we will review your current GDPR standing based on what you have on ground and decide the best steps to ensure you are compliant.
