GDPR : master compliance, prepare for certification
After the first traumatic period following the arrival of GDPR, companies started to realize that its implementation was not just an additional constraint. It actually helps reconcile business with the respect for individuals. Companies have come to understand that there was nothing to gain from a breach of trust between them and their prospects. Moreover, the implementation of GDPR also contributes to ensuring the quality and efficiency of processed data. Ever so many assets contained within an often criticized regulation.
Umanis supports you in your compliance development, picking up the pace you intend to take. Including everything from the initial diagnosis to data optimization, to the awarding of a European certification and finally to dematerialized compliance processes.
The challenge of GCPR compliance
A GDPR infringement can be expensive - up to 20 million euros or 4% of global revenue, whichever is greater. First heavy sanctions have already been applied. Another sanction that is often overlooked is that of the market: loss of consumer confidence can have very significant financial and human consequences.
Even if companies are on a battle footing, it is a complex task to achieve compliance and then follow it through. It calls upon significant and varied internal expertise - CIO, legal, compliance, quality, business. It involves regulatory, legal, technical and organizational aspects of data protection. To make these principles a living reality in the workplace every day calls for meticulous and very demanding work.
Thus, advice from a strong compliance experts team can prove crucial to avoid any possible infringement.
