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.
GDPR PREPARATION FOR HOSTING & CLOUD COMPANIES
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
