What you will learn:
This paper explains four highly practical key steps to take to get your security posture ready for GDPR compliance.
- The importance of taking a risk-based approach to GDPR security readiness
- Why you need to start by mapping data flows within your organization and outwards to third parties
- Why a GDPR gap analysis isn’t enough to create your GDPR security program
- The ongoing requirements of a functional GDPR security program
Time is running out for complying with GDPR. It’s vital that organizations that have not yet started preparation ensure that they are aware of their obligations under GDPR and start to put a program in place now.
That makes it important that you identify and prioritize as soon as possible critical risks as well as key issues and business objectives relating to your compliance program. GDPR requires that this is done using a risk-based approach that enables you to assess impact to data subjects and to the business.
Yet rather than only posing a major compliance burden, GDPR also offers the opportunity to signpost ethical business values and build customer trust. To maximize these benefits and minimize the risks, taking the right approach to compliance before the deadline is vital.
