      All the GDPR checklists you'll ever need

      Compliance training

      If you live on planet earth, then the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will impact you. It is good to know your data rights; to understand how companies store and use information about you. If you work with data (most of us do!), it is even better to know your responsibilities.

      We’ve taken the time to do our research and collected the best online resources to help you prepare your business.

       

      The data protection act requires companies of greater than 250 employees to have a Data Protection Officer (DPO) in-place to be compliant. Many will already have a Compliance Officer but smaller companies still have the same obligations and carry the same risks. Checklists are a great start to understand, prepare and take action.

       

      At Logicearth, we offer a range of Compliance online training modules. Our suite includes a GDPR training course – and it is a good one!

       

      Take a sneak peek at our GDPR course or see our full list of engaging compliance courses including Anti-money laundering, Information security awareness, and more. These are offered via a simple site-license, can be customised to your business context and provide practical GDPR staff training.

      a GDPR COMPLIANCE checklist can help protect YOU

       

      We live in an increasingly digital world, with more and more data available about all of us. Our most sensitive and personal information is at the mercy of people and organisations that we trust to do the right thing.

       

      But data protection protects that trust even more; for data protection violations – fines have increased to €20 million or 4% of the total turnover of a company.

       

      Working in compliance and learning & development, we are trusted to properly manage sensitive personal data. It’s important that we understand the risk that mishandling employee and customer data poses to our organisation.

       

      Personal data may also include special categories of data as well as criminal conviction and offences data. These are considered to be more sensitive and you may only process them in more limited circumstances.

       

      ICO, the UK’s Information Commissioner's Office have a useful set of questions to help you assess your personal risk. These are written for data protection officers but are accessible to anyone seeking basic legal advice about what to do with the data you hold.

       

      This video from our course shows how data should be handled if it is transferred overseas:

      SEVEN of the best GDPR checklists and insights

      If you’d like more detail, we’ve curated the best of the best in the list below. Here’s to data sensitivity and keeping us all safe!

      1. Computer business review – 8 Things Everyone Needs to Do

      Do you know what type of data your organisation deals with? Is it structured or unstructured data? Can you clearly separate your sensitive data?

      2. HubSpot – are you ready?

      Kris Lahiri, Chief Security Officer at EgnyteDo, outlines an eight-step process to prepare for GDPR. Do you have procedures in place to handle requests from data subjects to modify, delete or access personal data? Do these procedures comply with the new rules under the GDPR?

      3. Infoworld – getting your Infrastructure Compliance-Ready

      This checklist establishes employee access authorisation policies to limit access to data and ensure privacy. Keep the policies updated to reflect organisational need and monitor for a data breach.

      4. Helpnet Security – privacy awareness for GDPR

      GDPR will streamline data protection for individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses the export of EU citizens’ personal data outside the EU. This means both Eurozone companies and those based in the U.S. will have to comply with the regulation.

      5. UK Information Commissioner – Data protection self assessment

      Understand the difference between data controllers and data processors – both have different responsibilities under the legislation. What lawful basis do you have to process personal data? This self-assessment helps small to medium businesses.

      6. Lewis Silkin – GDPR - 11 things you need to do in your workplace video

      Lewis Silkin, a global law firm headquartered in the UK, recommends that you map and audit your data first. What personal data do you have, where is it stored, where is it sent, how is it processed, and what do you tell people about the processing?

      1. 7. tHE EU’s checklist for data controllers

      This interactive checklist is specifically for data controllers. Data controllers are the decision makers who set the purposes for which data is collected and used. Most service providers, like Logicearth, act as data processors who follow our clients direction.
