Understand your GDPR compliance requirements

Our data protection consultants will assess your organisation’s privacy management and data protection practices through an on-site review of the following areas:

  1. Governance – the extent to which data protection accountability, responsibility, policies and procedures, performance measurement controls, and reporting mechanisms to monitor compliance are in place and operating throughout your organisation.
  2. Risk management – your organisation’s arrangements for privacy risk management, the extent to which information-specific risks are incorporated into corporate risk management, and the extent to which risks to the rights and freedoms of data subjects are addressed.
  3. Privacy by design – the extent to which data protection by design has been incorporated into the development of your systems, services, products and/or processes.
  4. DPO (data protection officer) – whether your organisation is required to appoint a DPO, whether one has been appointed and, if so, whether they meet the Regulation’s requirements.
  5. Roles and responsibilities – the extent to which your organisation has defined and established appropriate roles and responsibilities, and delivered appropriate training and awareness.
  6. Scope of compliance – whether your organisation has clearly defined the scope of its GDPR compliance, taking account of all data processing in which it has a part, whether as data controller or processor, as well as any data sharing.
  7. PIMS (personal information management system) – whether your organisation has implemented a PIMS that documents its GDPR/DPA 2018 compliance, and addresses staff training and awareness.
  8. ISMS (information security management system) – whether your organisation has implemented an ISMS to meet the GDPR’s requirements for “appropriate technical and organisational measures” in order to ensure the security of the personal data it processes.
  9. Rights of data subjects – the processes your organisation has implemented to facilitate and respond to data subjects exercising their rights under the GDPR/DPA 2018.

My Company wanted support in reviewing our GDPR Compliance and identifying starting points for any changes needed. I was supported by Kevin Downs from the Sales Team in selecting IT Governance/DQM GRC GDPR Gap Analysis service for the Group and this service turned out to be absolutely the right solution for us. Ably delivered by Martin Fletcher whose knowledge of the subject and his willingness to adapt to fit into a schedule that suited our business needs was very welcome indeed. The service completely met with expectations and the whole process from start to finish was very helpful indeed. This is a worthwhile solution that is wholeheartedly recommended.
