GDPR - Business Data Requirement
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an updated version of the Data Protection Act of 1984 for the 21st century
designed to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of personal data.
Understand The Key Elements of GDPR Within Your Business
GDPR is not designed as a barrier to conducting business, but as the framework of requirements which organisations must meet to be compliant with the regulations.
Data Workflow & Procedures
Define Your Data
There are many reasons for holding personal data on somebody. From the 25th May 2018 it will no longer be acceptable to hold data “just because” you will need to define and communicate what information you are holding, what you intend to do with it and more importantly when you will be deleting it. Understanding this, makes it easier to map your data and create policies and procedures for data protection.
Map Your Data
Experience to date has shown the value of a data map where all those who are involved with handling personal data can draw on the processes and identify the risks, interactions and users. By identifying the personal data to map and inputting this data into the correct software, you will be provided with a user-friendly GDPR and ISO 27001 compliant report providing both a visual map and the associated documentation.
For GDPR documentation to be effective, the editor of the business processes must understand both the Regulations and the needs of your company. A cost-effective method of achieving this outcome is to work with a GDPR certified practitioner and combine your collective knowledge to build a suite of compliant procedural documentation which is relevant for the organisation.
Most data breaches come from within an organisation. Disgruntled employees and poor data management are key contributors to the risks surrounding personal data. Creating internal data policies and procedures makes both you and your business compliant and prevents a costly fine for impeding or breaking the regulations.
