What is GDPR Assessment?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in May 2018. It requires organisations to make a number of changes to the way they manage the personal information of EU Citizens. No longer can we issue opt out emails and presume that silence is consent – companies will need to be able to prove that they have been granted permission to use the data they hold. And that is just the beginning.

Any person will also have the right to challenge a company about the information they hold – and they have the right to be forgotten – this means call recordings, CCTV footage, email trails, anything that can be counted as evidence of the existence of an individual must be removed.

The GDPR assessment combines training and gap analysis, with practical exercises to help ensure our clients are equipped with the tools and knowledge required to secure personal information in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation– ensuring that the risk of fines is significantly reduced.

If you want to understand what the impact of the regulation will mean for your organisation and ensure you are aligned with the requirements, then you should consider the GDPR Assessment offered by QMS International.

These are just some of the benefits you will experience with the GDPR Assessment delivered by QMS International.

Like with all the services we offer, we focus on making the process of achieving compliance with the GDPR as cost-effective as possible – while also ensuring the process remains straight forward and easy to understand so that you are confident in what you are doing by the time we leave your organisation.

Here are the top benefits of using the GDPR Assessment framework:

  1. Minimised risks – We will conduct an in-depth Gap Analysis of your existing processes. This will help to identify any potential risks or breaches, where fines could be incurred, ensuring processes are more aligned with the regulation

  2. Improved data management – During the GDPR Assessment we will complete data mapping exercises with you and your team so you have greater control over, and awareness of, the data you hold, who it is shared with, and what you need to do to protect it

  3. Greater ability to manage risks during projects – We will show you how to complete a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA), this is important because it will help you to identify personal data risks when managing existing projects or starting new ones

  4. Auditable document trail – GDPR stipulates that an organisation must be fair, transparent and lawful. This means having a document trail in place to demonstrate compliance when required. We can provide you with the necessary templates to help you achieve this

  5. Improved reputation – by gaining consent from customers before contacting them and by improving the way you manage data, you will increase confidence in your brand and reduce the risk of fines and subsequent reputational damage

  6. Improved staff awareness – we will provide your team with training on the new GDPR. Teaching them about the changes that will take place, what this means to their roles and what it means to your organisation – helping to ensure commitment is achieved at all levels throughout the organisation

    Had two consultations; ISO 27001 and ISO 45001 - I found both consultations to be insightful, educational, and also inspirational. We have vastly improved the way we do things as a result from both consultants being so helpful in leading us towards to positive changes, and continual improvement.
