Fast Track Your GDPR Compliance Efforts

Quickly address regulatory requirements, even after the deadline.

  • Organizations often tackle compliance efforts in an ad hoc manner, resulting in an ineffective use of resources.
  • The alignment of business objectives, information security, and data privacy is new for many organizations, and it can seem overwhelming.
  • GDPR is an EU regulation that has global implications; it likely applies to your organization more than you think.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • Financial impact isn’t simply fines. A data controller fined for GDPR non-compliance may sue its data processor for damage.
  • Even day-to-day activities may be considered processing. Screen-sharing from a remote location is considered processing if the data shown onscreen contains personal data!
  • This is not simply an IT problem. Organizations that address GDPR in a siloed approach will not be as successful as organizations that take a cross-functional approach.

Impact and Result

  • Follow a robust methodology that applies to any organization and aligns operational and situational GDPR scope. Info-Tech's framework allows organizations to tackle GDPR compliance in a right-sized, methodical approach.
  • Adhere to a core, complex GDPR requirement through the use of our documentation templates.
  • Understand how the risk of non-compliance is aligned to both your organization’s functions and data scope.
  • This blueprint will guide you through projects and steps that will result in quick wins for near-term compliance.
