In January 2012, the European Commission proposed a comprehensive reform of data protection rules in the EU.

On 4th of May 2016, the official texts of the Regulation and the Directive have been published in the EU Official Journal in all the official languages.

While the Regulation will enter into force on 24 May 24th 2016, it shall apply from May 25th 2018. The Directive enters into force on May 5th 2016 and EU Member States have to transpose it into their national law by May 6th 2018.

The objective of this new set of rules is to give citizens back control over of their personal data, and to simplify the regulatory environment for business.

The data protection reform is a key enabler of the Digital Single Market which the Commission has prioritised.

The reform will allow European citizens and businesses to fully benefit from the digital economy.

EU Privacy Protectors will help your organisation to get compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation.

Don’t wait too long to get compliant though! Time left:

Privacy Services

Under the proposed Commission Regulation all public authorities and companies of over 250 employees or whose core activities require systematic monitoring of employees or other individuals, are required to appoint a data protection officer.

We acknowledge that the hiring of a Data Protection Officer may require time, money and resources and sometimes a part-time DPO suffices which is why EU Privacy Protectors offers the DPO role as a service to organisations requiring an interim or fixed data protection officer for a few days a week at favourable terms.

General Data Protection Officer work will include drafting and monitoring implication and application of data protection and related policies, monitoring the implementation and application of the new Data Privacy regulatory framework, ensure that all data processes are appropriately registered and maintained and monitoring, documenting, notifying and communicating data security breaches.

Services

Specifically we will provide the following services in the course of our role as Data Protection Officer of your organisation:

  • One free initial video conference consultation to discuss requirements
  • Awareness sessions for employees and departments to raise knowledge about the coming legislation and the impact on the organisation.
  • Regular meetings with key stake holders in your organisation to determine scope, budget and detailed requirements for the management of a data protection programme
  • Production and/or implementation of key data protection documentation in your organisation
  • Bespoke data protection training to key personnel, including HR. Legal, IT, Security, Commercial
  • Assemble a data protection registration that will eventually replace the current notification system
  • Privacy impact assessments on some of your processing systems, taking into account the new proposed “right to be forgotten”  and proposing methodology to meet this requirement
  • Full audit on all your systems and processes
  • Dry-swim testing privacy breach processes
  • Annual DPO reporting
