GLS Data Protection Compliance Assessment Toolkit™

Self-assess how well your privacy compliance function/infrastructure is performing

The Problem

Understanding your business's compliance status with data protection laws is now essential.

Related challenges include:

  • data protection compliance is a big issue with serious consequences
  • directors can face personal liability in some jurisdictions
  • DP laws are increasingly emerging globally
  • every party of your business is using personal data
  • your operations cover multiple data protection regimes
  • you really would like to know what areas you need to improve
  • you know that a DP breach can massively impact your reputation
  • it is difficult to get your organisation to support your compliance efforts
  • there are few actual “audit” based tools available to help you assess your compliance
  • vague DP obligations can make it difficult to recognise a compliance solution

Developing a single view of your organisation's compliance levels is now critical.

The GLS Solution

GLS Data Protection Compliance Assessment Toolkit™  is a must use resource for any compliance officer wanting to assess how well their data protection compliance function is performing.

Data Protection Compliance Assessment Toolkit™ allows you to rapidly self-assess the adequacy of your data protection compliance function infrastructure.

Comprised of more than 200 diagnostic questions this comprehensive tool examines the full spectrum of policy assets, organisation design and workplace behaviours.

This audit toolkit covers 12 compliance areas: personal data collection, consent collection, storage, security, accuracy, maintenance, regulatory interactions, breach protocols, DP impact assessments, your privacy office and processing and sharing practices.  

Audit findings help identify (i) your current compliance readiness (ii) optimisation intervention areas to boost your data protection compliance function.

Based around the high-water mark of GDPR standards, this audit toolkit  offers substantive compliance findings against most international data protection regimes.

Understanding current compliance levels and areas for improvement is a vital first step for efficient compliance as there are a wealth of freely available DP related resources you can be using.

A completed audit report is compelling evidence to present to any regulator about how serious your business is in ensuring that it complies with its data protection compliance obligations.

This solution also gives you access to one of GLS’ global privacy experts. 

Problem solved.
