Pathway to GDPR Compliance

If you think GDPR doesn’t apply to you, you may want to reconsider.

GDPR threats

Apathy is not the best strategy. But this doesn’t necessarily mean you have to embark on a huge, costly project. Whatever the size of your business, let Demarq help you simplify the process and find an approach that’s best for you.

How will GDPR expose your company?

You’ll no doubt be familiar with the severe consequences of being non-compliant but where does the threat of exposure come from?

  • Individuals exercising their rights to access their own data.
  • Data security breach (exposure of personal information).
  • Audit from ICO (UK) or other EU regulatory authority.

What do I need to do?

Doing nothing, or just coming up with a plan is not enough and leaves your organisation open to high levels of risk. However is it actually possible to be 100% compliant? There’s a low of diminising returns where the investment may be larger than the potential fines.

We believe in the 80% sweet spot – typically denoting a completed risk assesment, discovery, prioritisation of data assets and processses. Full identification complete, active change management and governence through some lower priority items might remain.

What’s Demarqs approach?

Our approach is based on 5 stages –

1

Discover – Assess and identify high-risk areas of potential exposure, produce recommendations and determine next steps.

2

Identify – Access, identify and classify data using proprietary technology to determine where personal data resides.

3

Govern – Provides the foundation for meeting new requirements. Includes data inventory, lineage and traceability solution across your businesses data assets and workflows.

4

Protect – Set-up a personal data hub. Secure sensitive and personal data items.

5

Monitor – Operationalise business processes for ongoing reporting, logging and monitoring of who is using personal data and for what purpose.
