Time is almost up - GDPR and Scenarios where it is applicable

The GDPR deadline is fast approaching and a lot of companies still have some work to do in order to be compliant with the new regulations. Recently the GDPR Coalition published the scenarios where GDPR is applicable to facilitate people identify how you and your company need to act.

The 25th of May of 2018 will mark the end of the transition period for the GDPR and will mark the full implementation of the new regulation.

Check it out the scenarios below where the GDPR is applicable and where you need to be ready for the changes.

EU parent company

If your parent company is registered in the EU territory, it is possible that GDPR compliance may be coordinated at that level. If that is the case, you may be able to rely on parent company procedures.

Personal Data Locally?

It is likely that local data will be held, which may not be captured by parent company processes. Examples might include HR/payroll, mobile phone contacts. The best option is to perform an audit of local data captured to ensure that it is processed in accordance with corporate procedures.

Local Suppliers

You might consider formally advising local suppliers of your potential need to audit their processes for GDPR compliance, particularly where local suppliers are a key part of the supply chain.

Staff Training

Training is required for everyone in the company, doesn’t matter the position, from the goods received clerk to the board of directors. Embedding GDPR principles in the company culture will be critical in achieving compliance. Therefore, while training is important, ‘tone from the top’ it is also critical.

Off-site Storage

When evaluating the results of a data audit, you should consider the status of archive documents which are held off-site. Particular consideration should be paid to documenting the control of such information when it is retrieved from the archive and re-introduced into the main body of company documentation.

Trading with Non-EU companies

If you are trading with entities in a 3rd country which does not have an adequate data protection regime, the transfer of personal data may only take place via a legal transfer mechanism.

Most know that GDPR is taking effect on May 25th 2018 which requires organizations to prepare technology, processes and people towards gaining compliance. Due to this EU regulation there has been a recent surge of training solutions that have become available in the marketplace.

Paul Jordan, Managing Director – Europe IAPP, will provide clarity on why privacy and security sit on opposite sides of the front door to an organization, and how GDPR will impact organizations, people, technology and processes all over the world. Mr. Jordan will also will explain how IAPP’s ISO certified training, certifications and membership sets itself apart from other solutions. Do not miss this exceptional opportunity to hear the latest from Mr. Jordan while having the opportunity to ask questions how best to prepare your organization for GDPR and longer term data privacy needs.
