EU GDPR Compliance Management Made Simpler
When the European General Data Protection Regulations become law in 2018, many organisations will face having to put policy, procedures and controls in place to enforce good data governance practices for the first time. While data protection is hardly a new concept, there has never before been any obligation on commercial organisations to disclose a breach and monitor compliance. This is a major change, and one that could prove costly if you ignore it.
If the spotlight is due to fall on you as your organisation's Data Protection Officer, it will certainly help if you have a tool that will provide you with a “road map” to guide you through the process of building your information asset register and data maps, and mapping the dependencies of the information governance process for your organisation. After all, who has time for re-inventing the wheel these days?
If you are looking for software that will save you time in achieving ISO 27001 and GDPR compliance, we recommend SecureAware from Neupart. SecureAware is Information Security Management System (ISMS) software that makes it simpler for you to manage risk and information security for your company. It provides a central reference point for controls and risk information, and allows you to comply with best practices and manage your information security management process more efficiently. What is even better news though is that the EU regulation requirements are now incorporated into the SecureAware ISMS application so that you can easily carry out a gap analysis for your company against the EU directive.
The reason why you can do the gap analysis so easily is that the EU regulations are already built in to the requirements library in SecureAware along with the ISO 27001, PCI and COBIT requirements.
Once you know where your gaps are with respect to the new regulations, you can connect a task list to your gap analysis, which will make it easy for you to monitor and report on your compliance status.
SecureAware's Task Management capability can also be used to control recurring tasks such as internal audits that you need to undertake as part of your compliance monitoring and reporting process.
SecureAware isn't the silver bullet that will allow you to cross GDPR compliance off your To-Do list, but it will help you to identify your gaps, manage your remediation processes, and even help you with education and awareness for your employees. If you are still struggling to get to grips with managing Information Security, you should find that SecureAware will make your life much simpler.
