What is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?
The GDPR is a new regulation intended to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union, applying automatically to all EU member states from 25 May 2018. The GDPR replaces the Data Protection Act 1998.
Our team of data protection experts have devised a GDPR Self-Audit Tool, this includes the below documents to give your organisation an overview of how it is, or how it can become “GDPR compliant” :
- Self-Audit Questionnaire;
- GDPR E-Book;
- Data Asset Inventory Spreadsheet;
- and a GDPR Manual (relating to all things GDPR)
Our Tool is easy to use and cuts through the legal jargon providing you with the knowledge and ability to undertake an audit of your organisation to identify what steps it needs to take to be GDPR compliant before 25 May 2018.
