GDPR compliance is a requirement for organisations in terms of managing their data protection risk and demonstrably showing their customers, staff, and partners that you take their data protection seriously. Use Ward Solutions expertise, experience and resources to do the heavy lifting to determine what you need to do and carry out those tasks to maintain that improved data protection and privacy security posture and compliance.
General Data Protection Regulations poses a significant new challenge to organisations in their handling of personal data. Customers and consumers also now expect and reward a company that has demonstrably higher levels of privacy and confidentiality regardless of regulation. The risks to an organisation's brand, revenue and financial stability from not being compliant with privacy regulations are now significantly increased.
GDPR requires a new approach to delivering data subject rights and requires much more rigour around management systems and the implementation of appropriate technical and organisation measures. It impacts across most business functions and stakeholders and is no longer exclusively an IT or IS problem.
Organisations have typically depended on legacy approaches and historic privacy work programs to comply with previous data protection legislation. There is now a significant cultural shift towards privacy involving a significant body of work, expertise and ongoing management required to move to this new level of compliance and market expectation. Organisations need expertise and resources to help them attain GDPR compliance and create that privacy cultural shift.
