This EU GDPR Compliance Gap Assessment Tool has been created to help firms kick-start their GDPR compliance project by assessing their current stance against the GDPR, helping them clearly establish areas for development, and plan and prioritise their project effectively.

The tool will come with a how-to video presented by IT Governance Ltd’s CEO Alan Calder. The short video gives simple instructions for how to use the tool to assess the GDPR compliance status of the firm. Please note, the video was filmed using a previous version of the Gap Analysis tool so there will be some differences, however the use of it remains the same.

It contains five useful tabs: The first contains instructions on how to use the tool. The second provides an executive summary to quickly view your compliance status once the tool has been completed. The third is the main gap analysis tool, the fourth, a specific process analysis tool. The fifth and final tab is a data list designed to assist you when filling out the process analysis tool.


Tailored for the legal sector

This tool includes a few changes to make the tool more relevant to the legal sector. Wording has been changed to accommodate company structure and terminology legal firms use, as well as ethical rules regarding processing the data of another law firm’s client. We have also include legal sector specific examples on the process analysis tab – where you will note all of your data processing procedures.


Completing the tool

The questions are grouped into sections:

  • Governance
  • Risk management
  • GDPR project
  • DPO
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Scope of compliance
  • Process analysis
  • PIMS
  • ISMS, ‘integrity and confidentiality’ (Principle 6) and Article 32
  • Rights of data subjects

Answering these questions provides organisations with a high-level, colour -coded analysis of their state of compliance.

This tool is in Excel format and will work in any Microsoft environment; it does not need to be installed like software and it does not depend on complex databases. It relies on human involvement and basic knowledge of the GDPR.

It was not designed for conducting a detailed and granular compliance assessment. If you require specialist help in this area, contact our data privacy consultancy team.
