Is your organisation GDPR ready?
Many businesses in the EU are still not prepared to meet the the requirements of GDPR coming into effect on 25 May 2018.
GDPR is legislation that is intended to strengthen data protection and privacy for everyone in the European Union. It’s some of the toughest privacy regulation in the world and affects businesses that use and store data concerning individuals within the EU and the EEA.
This wide-reaching data privacy legislation affects how businesses handle the data of EU citizens – regardless of the location of your business. It sets out specific administrative requirements for how data is handled, and data holders must fulfil requirements to communicate with data subjects about the information that they hold on them.
GDPR affects all organisations and departments that handle EU customer data. If you’re communicating with clients in multiple languages, you’ll need to consider the impact of GDPR in your wider localisation strategy.
Specific considerations include:
- Email communications to clients
- Reviewing consent mechanisms
- Reviewing terms and conditions & privacy policies
- Updating legal contracts for suppliers and partners
- Documenting support for information requests
- Preparing internal documentation to aid staff in responding to data subjects exercising their rights
- And much more…
