What is GDPR?

  • The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) stands as the most stringent privacy and security law globally, established and adopted by the European Union (EU). This comprehensive regulation places responsibilities on all organizations that collect and process personal data of EU citizens. Within the framework of GDPR, key roles such as data controller, data processor, and data protection officer (DPO) are defined to ensure compliance.
  • The GDPR's significance is far-reaching, aiming to standardize data protection practices, bolster brand security, and fortify organizational cybersecurity. It applies to every entity that handles or processes personally identifiable information and monitors the online behavior of EU individuals, mandating strict data protection standards.
  • The GDPR's jurisdiction extends across all 27 EU member states, encompassing the broader European Economic Area (EEA), which includes nations like Iceland, Norway, and Liechtenstein. Switzerland has also implemented a privacy regulation akin to the GDPR.
  • Notably, even businesses beyond the EU's borders, particularly those operating on the cloud and handling EU citizens' personal data, fall under the purview of the GDPR if they have EU customers. The GDPR also governs the cross-border transfer of personal data from the EU. Complying with these regulations is crucial for any organization to navigate the complex landscape of European data protection law.

Objectives of GDPR

The major objectives of the GDPR are to increase individual ownership and rights over their personal data and to make it easier for businesses to conduct worldwide business. When processing the personal data of EEA residents, who are referred to in the regulation as "data subjects," all organisations are required to adhere to the laws and regulations outlined in the GDPR. This legislation restricts the processing of a person's personal information depending on where they are, where they are from, or where they live.

Why GDPR compliance training and certification?

Delegates will be led through the tasks and responsibilities of a data protection officer as part of a certified EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) Foundation and Practitioner training course, which will help them get ready to demonstrate complete compliance with the GDPR. Additionally, a comprehensive overview of how to create and carry out a continuous compliance programme is provided in this training session, along with a thorough introduction to the EU GDPR. Delegates who take this course will gain knowledge on how to communicate with their users ethically and effectively.

How to become GDPR compliant?

Here are the steps to become a GDPR compliant

1.Getting ready for GDPR certification

  • Before starting, always make a clear-cut project plan. Before moving forward with GDPR certification, make sure you involve the necessary stakeholders and undertake a readiness assessment to determine which tasks you need to finish.

2. Set up a personal data policy.

  • Next, create a top-level data retention policy for your cloud-hosted business as well as an internal personal data policy. A framework for GDPR compliance must include staff awareness. Conduct GDPR training sessions to familiarise staff with the fundamental concepts and practices of the regulation. Hiring a data protection officer to oversee your company’s GDPR is a good practice.

3. Make a list of the processing tasks.

  • Make a list of the processing activities carried out at your cloud-hosted company and identify the legal basis for each processing activity to implement data subject rights.

4.Establish a procedure for handling data subject rights

  • Before processing or storing the personal data of data subjects, your cloud-hosted business must have their consent to use cookies. The request must be presented in straightforward and simple language, along with information on how and for how long the requested data will be used and retained. Whenever they choose, data subjects should be free to withdraw their consent.

5. Implement a data protection impact assessment (DPIA)

  • The DPO shall carry out a data protection impact assessment prior to the start of any new projects that entail processing personal data that will be saved indefinitely. It examines the company's procedures and how they might affect the privacy of the people or entities whose data is being collected.

6. transferring personal data securely

  • Make sure the methods you use to send personal data outside of the EU are GDPR compliant. To protect such data, take the appropriate legal and security precautions.

7. Social Engineering

  • Make sure that all third-party contracts that include the processing of personal data are amended to comply with the GDPR.

8. Secure sensitive personal data

  • Make sure the methods you use to send personal data outside of the EU are GDPR compliant. To protect such data, take the appropriate legal and security precautions.

9. Define how to handle data breaches

  • The GDPR requires that data breaches are reported to the local data protection authorities within 72 hours of discovery.
