Privacy protection services require much more than a nicely formulated policy. With an architecture-based approach, you will be able to demonstrate your commitment to handling personal data with the respect it deserves.
We are entering a new era of tightening up legislation on the collection, storage and use of personal data. In addition to increasing financial penalties on part of regulators, individuals are demanding more transparency and greater rights to protect their data. From the point of view of compliance, driving force of organizations processing data on EU citizens is arrival of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which has been in force since 25 May 2018. Compliance with existing data protection legislation is certainly a good starting point, but GDPR will considerably lift the bar and organizations that are poorly prepared for future changes take a much greater risk than previous protection regime.
More than anything else, reputational risk will become a driving force worldwide, as negative publicity is increasing and customers will avoid companies mentioned in negative news headlines for companies that respect and respect real commitment to data protection.
Ensuring compliance with the new data-related regulations is always a challenge. Traditional approaches focus on documenting and communicating corporate policies in your organization and helping individual business units to implement their action plans. This makes it possible to keep the right direction and is a good prerequisite for making changes. But when it comes to data protection, is this enough? How can you be sure that your rules and policies work? You may need to choose a new approach that goes under the standard workflow of your organization to understand what's really going on with the data you've retrieved and processed. Without this basic understanding, neither the complexity of the organization of the data structures used nor the range of calls addressed to the GDPR can be judged, for which it is necessary to detail the ways and procedures of their implementation.
