The GDPR, General Data Protection Regulation, will take effect in May 2018. Your time is limited before you get prepared to GDPR.

Most importantly, it is time to get your organization prepared for this big data processing change. Fines up to 20 million euros or up to 4% of your annual turnover could be imposed if any data breach occurs after May 2018. Read Efficy’s recommendations carefully then.









Recommendation #1

Conduct an internal audit of your data process

Before taking actions, you need a clear picture of all the process in place in your organization. You have to list them all, including the type of personal data concerned, the department and people who handle, process, store, access those data. The first step is therefore to analyse you current data security situation.

Recommendation #2

Get prepared

This step is crucial when it comes to GDPR compliance. At this stage, you need to come back to your audit and take an analytical look. The idea is to reduce damage some data process could cause. You need to identify the risks of each of your data process and take actions to reduce the former. Once you have come up with internal risk management process, make sure you document them all to protect your organization in case of control by dedicated authorities.
