5 STEPS TO ENSURE COMPLIANCE

Step 1: Assess

Identify who in your organization creates, accesses or manages data. Audit existing policies and procedures. Inventory all data sources and where data is being stored. Evaluate current vendors and partners that you share data with. Assess current privacy risk exposure.

Step 2: Govern

With new data compliance and other data privacy laws coming into effect, businesses will need to update their privacy policies, term and conditions, disclaimers and other legal documentation. Training managers and employees on these rules of engagement will be an ongoing process.

Step 3: Respond

Perhaps the most critical component of data privacy is a consumer’s right to request, review and manage how their personal information is used. You must have a process for the requests to be initiated, validated and answered along with a way to implement preference changes and deletion requests.

Step 4: Map

Map the flow of consumer data in and out of your company to ensure you are able to respond back to a legal data request. Where do you acquire it? How do you use it? Who do you share it with? For what business purposes? Mapping can be completed by using sophisticated platforms to excel sheets depending upon the complexity and needs of your organization.

Step 5: Maintain

Unlike software platforms or operational processes that can be implemented and forgotten about, the various state data privacy regulations require ongoing management, updating, training, response and reporting. We work with your organization to build consumer data privacy compliance into your business processes.
