Greenstone has launched a suite of services to help organisations assess their readiness for the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into force in May 2018. Through Greenstone’s SupplierPortal solution, organisations can now assess both their suppliers’ GDPR compliance, as well as their own organisation’s readiness, for the regulation.
GDPR will affect companies globally, and means that both internal and external processes for identifying, tracking, managing and protecting personal data will need to be addressed. Under GDPR, data controlling organisations and their suppliers can be jointly liable for any data breaches or non-compliance, meaning there is a need to both engage and evaluate your suppliers’ performance in this area.
Greenstone has introduced a GDPR Assessment Questionnaire into its SupplierPortal solution along with an automated GDPR Audit Report. This questionnaire can be completed internally or distributed to suppliers for completion, with all responses automatically assessed. Developed in partnership with a third party regulatory and compliance expert, the questionnaire is fully aligned with the GDPR regulation and its requirements.
GDPR Assessment Service
There are two approaches to using the SupplierPortal GDPR Assessment Service, which can be can be implemented separately or in conjunction with each other:
- Supplier GDPR assessment - distribute the online questionnaire to the relevant suppliers and receive an automated Audit Report showing each supplier’s GDPR readiness and identifying any potential gaps in addressing the regulation.
- Internal organisational GDPR assessment – register online, complete the questionnaire and receive and share an automated Audit Report showing your organisation’s readiness for the GDPR regulation. Alternatively, you can distribute multiple questionnaires across different operating units, or regions, of your own.
Then, share your results:
- Access PDF downloads of supplier GDPR Audit Reports available any time from SupplierPortal.
- Share your organisations GDPR responses and supporting documents with any customer or client online through SupplierPortal.
