GDPR and Increasing Regulation vs. Effective Business Practices
Data protection laws and ever increasing regulatory and commercial pressure on the use of information are vital issues that impact on every organisation.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) represents possibly the biggest change to data protection law and affects every organisation that controls or processes Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of EU Customers and/or Employees.
We understand that in order to ensure the ongoing services you offer are executed in line with GDPR and other regulations, your organisation must first gain an understanding of the privacy risk areas you face and what exposure these risks leave you with. Not until those risks are identified and understood will you be able to mitigate those risks accordingly.
Your Data Protection & GDPR Health Check
DVV Solutions are able to assist you with this burden through a comprehensive Data Protection and GDPR Health Check providing an independent objective assessment of your organisation’s current data protection posture.
The Data Protection and GDPR Health Check is a business critical tool designed to identify how your organisation stands in relation to data protection legislation whilst also assessing your data security posture and includes:
Assessment of data processing in relation to the 6 Principles of GDPR
Assessment of privacy notices and DSAR processes
Assessment of your applicable policies and documentation
Assessment of your processes in relation to the 8 ‘rights’ of data subjects
Assessment of technical data security capabilities
Assessment of relationships with data processors
Assessment of staff training and awareness
Assessment of Incident Response & Breach reporting
Through thorough analysis of your current data protection documentation, policies and processes, interviews and team workshops your Data Protection and GDPR Health Check will identify the highest impact and risk areas, and give you detailed guidance to achieve a robust program of data protection and regulatory compliance.
