To mark International Data Protection Day 2016 we would like to share with you some exciting new projects we have been working on to help you and your organisation prepare for what is expected to be an interesting year for data protection, privacy and security.
Everything you need to know about the EU Data Protection Regulation
We have launched a new microsite providing key information to help you learn more about the EU Data Protection Regulation – what it covers, the impact it is likely to have on organisations across different sectors, actions to take now to prepare, as well as regular updates and information on our webinars and events.
This is our brand new tool to help you assess your data protection maturity level. It requires completing a survey covering areas such as storage of data, use of data, and customers’ rights. Once completed, a report summarising your organisation’s alignment with 12 key areas of global data protection is produced. The report also includes a practical action point check list and peer benchmarking data.
Data Protection Laws of the World Handbook
We are pleased to release the 2016 edition of our highly regarded Data Protection Laws of the World Handbook, which now covers over 80 jurisdictions. This complimentary go-to guide offers a high-level snapshot of selected aspects of data protection laws across the globe, in an easily accessible online format.
