38 weeks until GDPR… Checklist: Steps Towards Compliance

Chris HunterGDPR, General Interest, News

As part of his regular blog counting down to the introduction of the General Data Protection Review (GDPR), Chris Hunter of HM Network, advises that businesses use a checklist to make sure they are on the right path. 

We have been asked by businesses of all shapes and sizes, what steps should be taken towards becoming GDPR compliant?

This week we have another useful graphic which can aid your compliance journey. Whether you have a CEO or are a one man band. Whether your organisation has an appointed DPO or has nominated someone to assume the responsibilities that come with Data Protection, the guide below should help you make the right steps towards compliance.

This information has been provided by Data Protection Practitioners Sytorus, who are regular speakers at our #GDPRexpress events.

With the weeks counting down very quickly, it is advisable to be working your way through some sort of list like below to make sure you are on the right path. HM Network have been using Sytorus “PrivacyEngine” service for our own preparations and find it makes what could be a very daunting task, much more manageable.

“The toughest data privacy law in European business history – the GDPR – comes into effect in May 2018, so you and your company can’t afford to delay your GDPR readiness plans and compliance initiatives. We have prepared a checklist which will help you and your organisation to identify the steps you need to take towards compliance, whether you are at the beginning of this process or already starting to implement the necessary changes.
