GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) May 2018

Across the EU and including Malta, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years – we’re here to make sure you’re prepared.

After four years of preparation and debate, the GDPR was finally approved by the EU Parliament on 14 April 2016. It entered in force 20 days after its publication in the EU Official Journal and will be directly applicable in all members states two years after this date. Enforcement date: 25 May 2018 – at which time those organisations in non-compliance will face heavy fines and the Maltese Data Protection Act (Chapter 440 of the Laws of Malta) will be replaced by GDPR.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organisations across the region approach data privacy.

The key articles of the GDPR, as well as information on its business impact, are the object of our advisory role to make sure your organisation is compliant and well prepared.

Assessment

Is data core to your business sustainability and success? Is your data management compliant with the new regulations? Is your data management process secure enough to protect your data source? Is your staff aware, informed and ready for the changes in the data regulation? We will conduct a gap analysis to establish what your organisation needs to ensure it is in line with the new regulation. Book your FREE CONSULTATION by sending us a meeting request.

Planning

By conducting an assessment of your business processes, we can identify any weaknesses and assess any inherent risk in your data management processes. We will identify if your data management is protecting the privacy of your data subjects and how secure your processes are in managing data. From the gap analysis we will derive a series of recommendations and a plan for implementation.

Solutions

We will work hand in hand with you to deploy the solutions and recommendations according to the agreed plan. We will assist you in protecting the data that creates value to your business and redesign your processes to align them to the principles of data protection requirements. We will verify the privacy of your data source to ensure that data is handled safely and correctly and without creating any residual risk.
