We keep you one step ahead

If you haven’t heard about GDPR, where have you been? The current Data Protection Act has changed. From the 25th of May 2018, new legislation will apply to every organisation – with no exceptions – that focuses on their accountability for data. Companies must report any data breaches, and any organisation found to have breached GDPR will be fined up to 4% of their turnover.

What is the GDPR challenge?

The principles of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are enshrined in UK law and failure to adhere to them can result in significant fines. Yet there is currently no concrete GDPR compliance process. At the moment it is advisable to use the organisational governance requirements provided by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) or ISO 27001 which provide a helpful framework. But it is still the responsibility of the organisation’s Data Protection Officer (DPO) or Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) to ensure that the additional requirements of GDPR are included in their systems.

Who needs GDPR Consultancy?

Few organisations have the in-house resource to manage the full ongoing requirements of GDPR. This is because of the exacting demands of the role, making CISOs with specific GDPR expertise hard to find and expensive to employ. Most resident CISOs therefore benefit significantly from the added value, support and resource provided by industry experts with wider GDPR experience.

Many organisations require a higher level of support in fulfilling the CISO or DPO roles to meet the exacting requirements of GDPR. Engaging with an industry-respected GDPR team will ensure that all appropriate steps are taken in a timely and cost-effective manner.

What you need to know

In order to comply with GDPR, you will need a legal basis to process the data you hold, you may need to appoint a Data Protection Officer, and you will need to carry out Data Protection Impact Assessments on the data you hold. You will also need to have a clear process in place for evaluating, managing and reporting data breaches in line with the new regulations. The chances are you will probably need to review existing privacy policies to make sure they meet GDPR criteria, too.
