GDPR What You Need To Know As a Business


By Danielle Hemmens – Brighter Directions

Most, but not, all businesses around the world have now heard about the EU’s new data privacy law GDPR taking effect on 25Most, but not, all businesses around the world have now heard about the EU’s new data privacy law GDPR taking effect on 25th May 2018. The new law regulates how the personal data of any EU citizen can be collected, processed and utilised by businesses. GDPR will apply to all organisations based in the EU, and will also apply to any international organisations that have customers and contacts within the EU.

Ahead of the curve when it comes to GDPR preparation, Brighter Directions are already well-versed in the nuances involved having cleansed thousands of data entries in-house while delivering on-site consults for businesses of all sizes. They are sharing four simple steps to ensure you are fully compliant with the new EU data privacy law.

Breach Response


Detect and respond to the threat before a breach occurs but if a breach does occur, you need to know the details and the impact of the breach.


Risk Assessment


Establish a risk assessment process to ensure controls are appropriately designed and implemented.


Data Governance


Know where the data is in the enterprise and who has access. Implement controls in data processing activities.


Compliance Management


Establish a compliance program to ensure controls are effective and operational.

Things to consider:


a)  Can you reliably and quickly collate data from disparate systems? Are the right tools in place?

b)  Are IT systems smart enough to retrieve data – how much manual work will be required?

c)  Do template letters or policies need to be updated?

d) Is training required for those who will fulfil requests?
