GDPR Compliance Project

Implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation

The Client

International management and technology consulting firm – London, United Kingdom

My Role

Project Manager

The Business Challenge

The General Data Protection Regulation was written into law in 2016 and becomes enforceable from 25 May 2018. Any organisation that handles personal data is required to comply with this regulation.

The Solution

The project addressed a number of areas such as risk reviews for projects, customer engagements, and supplier contracts, to identify any improvements for the management of personal data. In addition, all policies were updated and a number of new ones created to ensure the compliant handling of personal data.

The Business Benefits

In addition to organisation complying with the law, this project has built increased trust from employees and customers, there is an improvement in the quality of data e.g. sales contacts, the improvement in a number of business processes, and the achievement of a new British Standard.
