Process overview

First-class security and efficient IT processes aside, it is the people within an organisation who steer the organisation. As such, it’s important that internal processes are not forgotten in your preparations for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). There is not one product or solution which will prevent a security breach if the people working with you aren’t properly briefed and trained. A suitable, risk based, information governance and accountability framework is needed to demonstrate compliance with GDPR and support your GDPR strategy.

These should include:

  • Mapping data flow
  • Implementing a breach notification procedure and policy
  • Reviewing 3rd party contracts with regards to data processing and sharing
  • Treatment of paper-based personal information
  • Printing policies
  • Training for staff on data protection policies and best practice within your organisation
  • Managing consent for data gathering

These compliance procedures and processes should be woven into the fabric of your organisation so that they become second nature for everyone. It’s also important that the processes are scheduled for review on a regular basis as your organisation grows and changes.
