The 4 Phases of a GDPR Compliance Program

The GDPR Compliance Program can be divided into four distinct phases:

Statement of Applicability

Planning, intelligence-gathering and expert legal analysis of applicable requirements and data mapping of your processing pursuant to article 30 GDPR.

Gap Assessment

Baseline for GDPR compliance (people, processes, technology).

Risk Assessment

A risk-based approach to identify risk-prone departments and prioritize compliance measures to address.

Privacy Management and Accountability Workbook

Plan towards an on-going compliance using the principles of accountability.

A Structured Approach to Privacy Management

Hitachi Systems Security has developed a GDPR Compliance Program that is unique in the market and can help you meet your compliance requirements.

Based on a Structured Approach to Privacy Management, our GDPR Compliance Program is designed to identify areas of non-compliance and recommend specific remediation measures within your business context to help you achieve GDPR compliance. It is flexible and applicable to work for any organization – regardless of its size, sector or industry. One of the foundations of this approach is accountability, which is a key principle of GDPR, sets forth in Article 5(2) GDPR. This approach to Privacy Management is based on three elements: responsibility, ownership, and evidence.

The Structured Approach to Privacy Management is also based on the Enterprise Risk Assessment (ERA) Methodology. An ERA provides a defined process to assess, identify, and prioritize risks and is an integral component of the enterprise risk management framework, aligning with COSO enterprise risk management framework or ISO 31000.

Why Hitachi Systems Security?

Some consulting firms suggest to do a data inventory, a corporate structure review or a data protection impact assessments prior to any other assessments. Unfortunately, not all organizations have the resources to start their privacy management by following these steps.

Our approach is different. We understand that GDPR programs differ depending on the context you are in, your industry, and your available resources. We provide personalized recommendations tailored to your specific legal and regulatory context. Instead of proposing a “one-size-fits-all” approach, we will review your situation to establish your privacy obligations and develop a GDPR compliance program that will be tailored to your business needs.
