Becoming GDPR compliant - University of Maastricht

by Hans Leemans

Many organization started their GDPR project to be compliant May 25th 2018. Lot of them are still working on that project and have great difficulties of getting the processing activities change to make them GDPR based. The rest of the organization believed that they could rest after they finalized the readiness assessment. But this is perhaps one of the largest misunderstandings in GDPR business. GDPR compliant is just the start. Adopting all of your business processes to GDPR requirements is the next phase. Do not only think of implementing Privacy By Design or default but for instance think about the challenge to synchronize your register of data processing activities in an organization with my processors and subprocessors. How do you get in control of processing activities that are shared in this chain of cooperating companies. This is GDPR 2.0, next step in your GDPR program.
