Quick wins to demonstrate GDPR compliance

 

1. Governance and accountability

 

Governance and accountability – Make sure that the board and senior management commit to the GDPR project and understand the possible consequences of non-compliance. Complying with the GDPR could have a significant impact on your resources, especially for larger and/or more complex organisations. International organisations should also consider the implications of Brexit in their GDPR planning.​


2. Roles and responsibilities

 

Complying with the GDPR is a project that cuts across functions and businesses. All areas of the organisation involved – IT, finance, HR, sales and marketing – must commit and share responsibility to reach your collective goal: achieving compliance.
