The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect on May 25, 2018 to strengthen and protect personal data privacy for all individuals located in the European Union (EU). It applies to any professional or commercial entity that collects or processes the data of EU residents, regardless of that entity’s physical location. While the GDPR is only concerned with the personal data of EU residents, its implications for companies on a global scale are substantial, as are the fines for non-compliance.
No matter how you tackle GDPR compliance or where you are on your journey, there are fundamental objectives your company is required to meet, and you’ll need to demonstrate or prove that you’re meeting them. Those requirements are outlined in this gap assessment tool.
How to Use This Gap Assessment Tool
We’ve grouped 51 requirements into five categories—covering data governance, data inventories, data protection, data breaches, and individual rights—and created a checklist you can use to make sure you’re covering all your bases for GDPR compliance. In an ideal world, you will have a check in the “yes” column for all requirements. More likely, you’ll have some holes in that column. The fewer “yes” checks you have, the greater your potential risk.
