Recently iGrafx CEO, Ryan Tognazzini, and I sat down to discuss a topic that is top of mind for many organizations: the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation. Here at iGrafx we have been inundated with requests around this topic. So, we decided to create a short video to help our audience understand everything they need to know about this new regulation. We’ll cover 3 very important topics in the video, including:
In the first segment, we not only define what GDPR is, but also explain how to know if your company needs to be compliant. You’ll learn why it’s not just organizations that do business in the EU, and why you might need to be compliant by extension. We also cover the risks of non-compliance, and why your changing business will continue to be impacted well past the May 25, 2018 deadline.
In the next segment, we explain why some organizations are struggling to understand GDPR and give step by step instructions on how to get compliant. We discuss who inside the organization is responsible, and which functions need to be the most involved.
Finally, and probably most importantly, we cover how you can ensure your organization stays in compliance. We talk about the crucial elements, from pulling key information into a business model, creating relationships between the processes and data they touch, understanding the risks and controls, to reporting on necessary data from an auditing perspective. These things (the business model in particular) allow your organization to see the impact of change to allow you to stay in compliance moving forward.
You can watch the entire discussion here to learn everything you need to know about the impact, and necessary preparation for this upcoming regulation. And you can also sign up for our next webinar, GDPR & BPM – An integrated approach with iGrafx here. We hope to see you there!
