Overview: GDPR Compliance

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) acts as a data security and privacy framework for the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA). Its primary objectives are:

  1. Ensuring the secure movement of personal data within the EU.
  2. Mitigating data breaches and privacy violations for EU citizens

The GDPR empowers individuals with greater control over their information while streamlining regulations for international businesses by consolidating EU data protection laws. It expands the reach of EU data protection legislation to encompass all international organizations processing the personal data of EU citizens. Key security-centric aspects of GDPR include:

The Right to Erasure”
Individuals have the right to request deletion of their personal data.
“Personal Data Identification and Classification
Organizations must identify and categorize personal data they handle.
Data Security by Design and Implementation
Security measures must be integrated throughout the data lifecycle.
Verifiable User Consent
Clear and demonstrably obtained user consent is required for data processing
“Data Breach Notification
Prompt reporting of data breaches to authorities and potentially affected individuals is mandatory

Methodology

Our Expertise

As technology advanced and the Internet emerged, the EU acknowledged the
imperative for enhanced security measures. The GDPR stands as Europe’s resolute response to data privacy and security concerns amid a landscape where individuals increasingly entrust their personal data to cloud services, amidst a rising tide of data breaches. Implementing GDPR compliance poses a monumental undertaking, particularly for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs).

The GDPR Assessment will comprehensively evaluate your organization’s data processing activities to ensure compliance with the regulation. Key focus areas include:

  1. Recognize the necessity for conducting a Data Protection Impact Assessment
    (DPIA)
  2. Data Processing Mapping
  3. Consultation with Supervisory Authorities
  4. Necessity and Proportionality Analysis
  5. Risk Identification and Assessment
  6. Risk Mitigation Strategies
  7. Documentation and Sign-off
  8. Integration with Compliance Plan

Why do organization need it?

The GDPR governs the cross-border transfer of personal data beyond the European Union and the European Economic Area, granting data owners the entitlement to data portability. Compliance mandates that businesses implement sufficient data security protocols to safeguard the personal information of customers and employees against loss or unauthorized disclosure. Organizations must adhere to the following key considerations to achieve this objective.

  • Protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data for both vendors and customers
  • Mitigating risks of fraud, data breaches, and unauthorized disclosures
  • Prioritize safeguarding the “Private Life” rights of individuals within the EU.
  • Highlight the criticality of exercising control, protection, and security over Private Data.
  • Empower the legitimate owner, the End User, with “full control” over their Personal Information

Our Approach

Data Discovery

The primary and foundational stage in achieving GDPR compliance involves utilizing tools such as a Data Recording Template to identify data. This approach encompasses several key processes: discovery, planning, investigation, implementation, go-live, and handover.

GAP Assessment

The ISO 27001 Gap Analysis, also known as a Compliance Examination or Pre Assessment, assesses the organization’s existing compliance with the standard and the extent of its Information Security Management System (ISMS) coverage across all operational areas. It provides businesses with insights and recommendations for implementing necessary controls to address any identified gaps.

Data Protection Impact Assessment

The primary objective is to assess the necessity for a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA). This involves outlining data processing, consulting stakeholders, and evaluating the need and proportionality of the DPIA. Risks are identified, assessed, and addressed with mitigation strategies. Upon completion, outcomes are formally approved, documented, and integrated into the plan. Continuous monitoring ensures ongoing compliance and effectiveness

GDPR Program Implementation

Some of the fundamental GDPR principles for program execution include breach management, privacy by design, data subject access, security safeguards, accountability, third-party management, data quality and rectification, as well as preventive measures.

Ongoing Program Operation and Monitoring
