EU GDPR GAP Analysis and Recommended Measures
The resolution on the protection of natural persons regarding the processing of personal data passed by the European Parliament and the European Council on April 27, 2016 has made privacy protection requirements significantly more stringent because of the obligation to implement the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (EU GDPR). Now the GDPR is in force, organisations affected must implement appropriate measures by May 25, 2018. The range of sanctions envisaged by the GDPR is considerable, amounting to up to 20 million euros or 4% of the organisation’s global turnover for infringement of a person’s rights. Consequently, many companies currently need to have their data protection measures reviewed, compared to the new requirements and potentially adjusted accordingly. TÜV TRUST IT will support you in this process with longstanding experience in the field of data protection. We have developed a GAP analysis that is specifically designed to meet the GDPR requirements, thus helping you assess the status quo and conceptualise a scheme to quickly and efficiently fulfil the new provisions.
