GlassIG Overview on GDPR
GDPR provides further clarification of responsibilities that were previously outlined in the directive, plus some new responsibilities and stringent enforcement measures. Within Article 5 ‘The Principles’ the regulation stipulates that “The controller shall be responsible for, and be able to demonstrate compliance with paragraph 1 (‘accountability’)”, this is generally interpreted as meaning that organizations will ensure adherence to the principles and maintain documentation on how this is achieved.
Good data awareness and housekeeping is core to the ability to meet and maintain compliance to GDPR. GlassIG advocates that the additional level of effort required by organizations should not be isolated additional effort, but, proportional and informed processes and policies that enhance existing best practices associated with Information Governance and Information Lifecycle Management initiatives.
With this vision in mind GlassIG provide our scalable and flexible platform to support clients with their initiatives in attaining and maintaining GDPR compliance.
