IT Governance launches EU GDPR Documentation Toolkit to help organisations achieve GDPR compliance by May 2018

01/07/2016

IT Governance, the leading provider of compliance documentation toolkits, is pleased to announce the launch of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Documentation Toolkit to help organisations comply with the GDPR.
 
The GDPR Documentation Toolkit is designed to help organisations prepare all the critical documents needed in order to meet and comply with the GDPR requirements. The toolkit’s document templates, policies and procedures enable organisations to achieve compliance with the Regulation using in-house skills and resources.
 
Alan Calder, the founder and chief executive officer of IT Governance, says: “Effective data protection is now a core competence that all organisations must develop and sustain internally in line with the GDPR. Organisations are now offered the ability to develop suitable policies, and to manage and implement processes, in order to build a strong data security posture and achieve compliance with the Regulation.”
 
The toolkit contains top-level policies, guidance on the best approach to starting the compliance project, the functionality of the toolkit and the GDPR itself, and procedures, work instructions and records, and a wide range of blank templates. Organisations can also benefit from project tools such as a documentation dashboard, roles and responsibilities matrix, and the ability to integrate GDPR compliance with the ISO 27001:2013 ISMS Documentation toolkit.

The GDPR introduces administrative fines that will be “effective, proportionate and dissuasive” – up to 4% of the total worldwide annual turnover or €20 million, whichever is higher. By 25 May 2018, organisations collecting and processing EU residents' data will be required to make significant changes to policies, processes and contracts in order to meet the requirements of the GDPR.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation Documentation Toolkit provides a comprehensive set of customisable document templates developed by legal and information security experts, and is designed to save the user weeks of work.
