y for GDPR
Not sure if General Data Protection Regulation
applies to your organization? Visit bit.ly/1TtydR4
to read the legislation in full.
Establish a roadmap to compliance. Start by
identifying any gaps between the current system
and GDPR requirements.
Next, draft a remediation plan. How will you make
data easily accessible to a data subject at their request?
What is required to enable an individual to have their
data erased upon request? How will you change your
process so that current and future development are
designed from the beginning for compliance?
Depending on the size of an
organization and the scale of
its activities, achieving GDPR
compliance can be both
time-consuming and challenging.
Beginning the journey through the
aforementioned steps provides
tangible progress and demonstrates
good faith to regulators.
Remember, legacy data and systems aren't grandfathered into GDPR.
Your roadmap needs to include a plan for locating the data categories
of interest and accessing and processing individual records,
regardless of the storage media involved.
