After a two-year transition period, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entered into force on 25 May 2018. Despite this period of adjustment, we note that many companies were only alerted thanks to the massive interest in the media over the past weeks.
During our seminar on 26 April 2018, the Belgian Secretary of State for Privacy, Philippe De Backer, declared that 25 May 2018 is not the end but just the beginning of the GDPR.
This is precisely why Agoria continued to work on its GDPR Compass, so that you can now work on the GDPR Compass in English too.
The language can be changed to English at any time at the top right of the software tool. All existing processes and reports already entered will now be available in English.
For organisations which do not yet have the GDPR Compass at their disposal, here are a few explanations. The GDPR Compass helps organisations to implement the GDPR:
- by assessing the risks related to each process;
- by indicating the measures that your company should take in order to comply with the GDPR;
- by providing a clear report on the status of the situation and the measures to take;
by supplying a register summarising all the process operations.
The objective of the GDPR Compass is to enable you to carry out the analysis yourself and to immediately know what the company has to do in order to comply with the regulation. This analysis will also lead to a quick increase in your knowledge about the GDPR, as each Yes/No question is accompanied by explanations and concrete examples.
