Getting Your Email Ready for GDPR

Unsure about whether GDPR applies to you?

It does not matter if it is pre- or post- Brexit or indeed if you are in Europe, APAC or USA. Any company holding identifiable information on a European citizen, no matter where it’s based, needs to be fully aware of the implications of GDPR.

The simple overview is that GDPR is being introduced to protect the privacy and security of all the data collected by companies (regardless of size) across the European Union, with fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €10 – €20 million (whichever is greater).

The Good news: You have until May 25th 2018 to comply with the legislation.

The Bad news: in reality that is not a long time – there is a lot to do and you really need to start preparations now!

Key Check Points for Email:

  1. Is our company storing or processing personal or sensitive data?
  2. Is this data adequately protected and encrypted?

  4. What attachments have been sent internally and externally from your company in the past X years?
  5. Have you appointed a DPO yet?
  6. Can you perform a full Audit Trail?
  7. Can you perform a fully automated report for personal and sensitive information?
  8. Can employees identify information that is identified as personal or sensitive?
  9. Have you run a PIA?
  10. Are you capable of adhering to the “Right to be Forgotten” DSAR requests?
