Holistic Enterprise Level Data Governance for GDPR Compliance

GDPROrganizations that have strong fundamentals and derive their strength from integrity and transparency can generate a solid sense of trust from the customers for the company. With several digital and technological advancements happening in today’s world,  organizations need to swiftly adapt to these changes to stay competitive. Organizations are evolving away from their traditional style to adopt a more agile and digitally optimal approach to capture and store data.

In today’s information-driven economy, it is  essential to efficiently utilize and safeguard information as it is  a vital asset in itself. With quintillions of megabytes of data generated every year containing information about user’s personal, financial, and health aspects, the organizations must rely on established risk mitigation and security systems to manage this information.

Personal Identifiable Information (PII) proliferation has increased tremendously as well as the ways to collect it with the advent of new technologies and devices. With a steep rise in personal data generation and the evergrowing risk of incidents has led to formulation of new regulation like GDPR for personal data protection.

What is GDPR?

The exponential spread of PII has led to governments and regulators to create new regulations to ensure protection of personal data and mitigate risks. The landmark regulation on data privacy protection related to PII is GDPR which will be implemented from May 25, 2018.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims to synchronize data protection policies pertaining to personal information across all the member states of European Union (EU). This regulation will give greater flexibility and control to EU citizens to protect their data and streamline the data protection process by having a consistent and synchronized regulation throughout EU. Non-compliance with provisions made in the regulation will attract a fine of 4% of global turnover or 20 million euros, whichever is higher.


Prominent Provisions in GDPR for Data Protection:


Consent of data subjects for doing data processing
In GDPR, it is clearly stated that a clear affirmative action or statement is required from the data subject to give consent for data processing.

Data anonymisation to ensure data privacy
Identification of any person by any organization will be made difficult with data anonymization.
gdpr 02
Data breach notifications to maintain data integrity
Any data breach incident must be notified to supervisor authority through a notification within 72 hours of organization getting aware of it.
gdpr 06
Cross border data transfer protocol
GDPR allows cross border personal data transfer only if responsible organization follows a strict regulatory compliance policy.
gdpr 03
Data protection officer appointment for strict adherence to compliance
Appointment of a Data Protection Officer (DPO) to ensure comprehensive compliance with its rules and regulations.

The Right to Erasure and Data Portability
Under the right to erasure, the user can ask to delete or remove the personal data which an organisation is holding on them. While data portability makes sure that personal data be provided to data subject by the controllers in commonly used format.
gdpr 04
Privacy Impact Assessment
To mitigate the risks associated with violation of date protection laws after data processing is done, the privacy impact assessment should be done in nascent stages.
