GLS Privacy Gap Analysis™

GLS assesses the gaps in your organisation's compliance with privacy laws and regulations

The Problem

Privacy has historically been an overlooked compliance challenge in your organisation. The GDPR has put the spotlight on your privacy compliance status. 

Related challenges include:  

  • improving your compliance capability is now a global top priority for your business
  • your privacy policy exists but was produced many years ago – its author long since gone
  • you are using increasingly large sets of data to operate your business
  • the global privacy landscape is changing drastically, particularly in Asia Pacific
  • ownership of your privacy function is highly fragmented in your organisation
  • keeping up with the changes in your business is increasingly challenging
  • regular changes to how and where your organisation uses personal data
  • you don’t really understand your organisation’s readiness to comply with privacy laws
  • you might have a privacy policy/function, but it has not been maintained for years
  • you are aware of the growing reputational risks associated with a data breach
  • policy forums around the world are following in the footprints of GDPR

You, like everyone else, know that 100% compliance with privacy laws is impossible and uneconomical. You just need to understand what you need to do and how to do it. 

The GLS Solution

GLS Privacy Gap Analysis™ can provide you with a comprehensive answer as to what extent your organisation is able to comply with relevant global privacy regulation.  

GLS Privacy Gap Analysis™ undertakes an extensive audit across the following areas of enquiry: 

  • privacy office and governance
  • compliance framework (documentary infrastructure)
  • information collection practices
  • records management
  • system design and security
  • subject access request procedures
  • information sharing practices
  • internal privacy awareness
  • enforcement risk awareness
  • public privacy compliance profile
  • assessing high risk processing activities
  • compliance function efficiency rating

GLS Privacy Gap Analysis™ also introduces you to what best practice privacy compliance looks like so you have a reference framework in which to agree your own compliance objectives. 

In light of the findings, we can help you craft a tailored privacy compliance plan together with a clear and practical path to achieving your requisite compliance outcomes. 

A major privacy compliance exercise should not take place without having applied this solution.
