Find out what’s required to achieve GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) compliance with this consultative service.
Total’s GDPR QuickStart Assessment will help to identify what’s required to be compliant, obtain the buy-in of key stakeholders and build the business case for remedial works. You benefit from the knowledge of an independent expert and a prioritised set of recommendations to put you on the road to GDPR compliance.
On 25 May 2018 the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into operation, replacing the Data Protection Act (DPA) 1998. While the fundamental principles are similar, GDPR is far more onerous and is expected to be proactively enforced through audits and punitive fines.
As the UK Information Commissioner’s Office warns: “It is essential to plan your approach to GDPR compliance now and to gain ‘buy in’ from key people in your organisation. You may need, for example, to put new procedures in place to deal with the GDPR’s new transparency and individuals’ rights provisions” (March 2017).
The GDPR QuickStart Assessment functions both as a stand-alone piece of fact-finding and advisory consultancy and as the first stage of a complete programme of GDPR compliance consultancy.
The GDPR QuickStart Assessment is a fixed price, four-step process focused on the needs of single organisation with a common security policy. For groups of companies and/or organisations with multiple policies multiple assessments are typically required.
1 Planning workshop
Service delivery commences with a half day planning workshop, typically based around a con-call with key stakeholders (see below) from your organisation, to agree objectives and plan service delivery.
3 Analysis and interpretation
Following analysis and interpretation of the information gathered, the consultant presents key findings in a RAG-graded report.
