Data Protection Impact Assessment and the GDPR

data-protection-impact-GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect during May 2018.  The focus of the GDPR is on proper data handling and management.  But why involve risk management in the picture?  And why the need for assessments and all those things?

RISK MANAGEMENT

Risk Management broken down to the basics, is the identification of current and future risks or hazards that could affect your company or the projects it is working on.  The aim here is also to identify possible solutions or mitigating factors for these.

Automating GDPR Compliance

Since May 2018 GDPR Compliance has been the new buzzword going around.  With its effects extending beyond the borders of the EU countries to all other country-based EU corporations as well as corporations handling sensitive information of EU citizens.

But all this lingo aside – how do you comply with all this?  Most small companies and NGO’s do not have a legal council on hand nor have a legal professional on staff to help with this.  Appointing one would cost a fortune that not all the smaller companies can afford. Continue reading “Automating GDPR Compliance”

Incorporating technology in compliance

technology-in-compliance-GDPR

Compliance and data rights and protection for an individual might seem to be at loggerheads with each other.  With the new GDPR regulation of May 2018, a person has a right to “be forgotten”.

At a certain point in time you, as the consumer, may request that your data be deleted from a company’s database.

This is all fine and well, but what about the financial side of things where the law might require the information to be kept for a little bit longer period of time? Continue reading “Incorporating technology in compliance”

Keep your company GDPR compliant and out of the headlines – in a good way!

Keep-your-company-GDPR-compliant

How many times have you filled out your personal details on a company website and just ticked the “T’s & C’s” block without even reading or thinking twice?  Have you considered what happens to your information from there onwards?

Or how many times have you slammed down the phone in anger at yet another telesales agent calling to sell some policies or store card to you, coincidentally already having all your personal information?

The new General Data Protection Regulation of the EU, as well as it’s sister, the Data Protection Bill, aims to curb these practices. Continue reading “Keep your company GDPR compliant and out of the headlines – in a good way!”

WILL EU-GDPR 2018 REGULATIONS IMPACT INDIAN COMPANIES AND THEIR BUSINESS RELATIONS WITH EUROPEAN COMPANIES?

The European General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) came into operation in May 2018.  The average Joe would think only individuals and companies based in the European Union would be affected.  But the impact of the EU-General Data Protection Regulation stretches far wider.

Any company with business interest based inside and outside the European Union, companies in India, NGO’s, CMRO’s, or any other organisation across the globe should expect to be impacted.
