General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

What is GDPR?

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) sets a minimum standard for data protection in the EU, and it is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years.

The objectives of the GDPR is both to protect the rights and the privacy of people in the EU and to facilitate the free movement of data throughout the EU.

Some of the key aspects of the regulation include:
– Obtaining unambiguous consents to process the data
– Anonymising collected data to protect privacy
– Providing privacy breach notifications
– Safely handling the transfer of data across borders
– Requiring some companies to appoint a Data Protection Officer to oversee GDPR compliance

The GDPR came into force on 25th May 2018 and it applies to all companies that handle EU citizens’ data. Failure to achieve compliance is now subject to stiff penalties and fines that can go up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 Million.

Typical GDPR compliance process

Our security consultants are here to support you
and help you achieve compliance using bright ideas and clever solutions.

Step 1

Data discovery and mapping

The process starts with an initial identification of where personally identifiable (PII) data resides within your network and who has access to it.

Step 2

Gap analysis

The gap analysis helps understand the risk to PII and the actions to manage and reduce risks. We help you find the best ways to fix the gaps and secure personal data.

Step 3

Protect personal data

We help you develop the polices and procedures required under the GDPR. We provide assistance on selecting appropriate security controls tailored to your network.

Step 4

Maintain compliance

Your data governance plan helps you define policies, roles and responsibilities for the management of PII within your organisation in continuous compliance with the GDPR.
