GDPR PREPARATION FOR HOSTING & CLOUD COMPANIES

OPEN-I ADVISORS WILL GUIDE YOU THROUGH YOUR GDPR COMPLIANCE JOURNEY IN A THOROUGH AND COST EFFICIENT MANNER
The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) was enacted to deal with the handling of personal data of European Union residents. It was approved by the European Union on April 14th, 2016, and the two-year implementation phase ends May 25th 2018. As of that date, everyone handling EU citizen data needs to be compliant.

If you collect, store, process, or handle data containing personally identifiable information (PII) about your customers, you are likely a data processor, and need to know about these new regulations. If you do any business with persons in the EU, you need to do some research to make sure you are (or will be) in compliance. Chances are, you’re not! You will need to change some of your data collection, or at least practices. Then you’ll need to explain what you’re doing with the data you’re collecting.

OUR GDPR & E-PRIVACY DIRECTIVE SERVICES

Open-i Advisors’ data consultants are ready to help you take control of your data. We can help you arrive at a plan for perpetual compliance with the privacy requirements under both GDPR and the e-Privacy directive. We start the same way you should – with a SecurePrivacy scan. We strongly recommend you start that right away, so we included that part of the process above. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We take that info, along with information we gather about your internal data mapping, and we manage the process for you. We even partner with a legal team focused on GDPR and e-Privacy Directive compliance, so if you’re looking for a holistic solution we can provide that as well

We do all the work to help you map the way your organization uses data to prepare it for easy analysis by a legal team. By working with Open-i Advisors, you can save time and money by packaging up everything you will need to hand off to legal counsel so that they can address your needs in as low cost a manner as possible. Stages include:

  • Initial Compliance Check
  • Data Discovery – External
  • Data Discovery – Internal
  • Final Compliance Check
All of this builds upon the exciting technology of our partners at SecurePrivacy.

YOUR FINAL REPORT WILL INCLUDE

i. A summary of risk points

ii. A map of data flows by department

iii. A list of suppliers and other ​third​ parties with whom the client may share data (or who may share data with the client), with their GDPR statements included as relevant

iv. A list of all found public privacy or disclosure statements, ready for review

At the end of the GDPR prep, you’ll know what risks are present that can be mitigated, and what next steps you can take.
All this is offered for a reasonable hourly fee, which when put through an efficient action-oriented process will result in tremendously low cost for your company to gain all the insights you need to identify internal changes needed by your organization, and to engage a lawyer to make targeted, efficient changes to public statements.
