GDPR compliance demystified with new online self-service tool

Information security specialists, Shred-it, has announced the release of a new online self-service tool designed to help businesses achieve General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance.
Following guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), GDPR Manager guides users through a six-step process from initial assessment to an outgoing action plan.
This announcement comes after recent survey findings in Shred-it’s 2018 State of the Industry Report showed that 22% of small business owners were totally unaware of GDPR’s implementation, and only 39% of large organisations had updated their procedures for detecting, reporting and investigating a data breach.
One of the most crucial aspects of compliance is being able to demonstrate how a company acquires, manages, stores and destroys personal data or Personally Identifiable Information (PII).
David Hagelthorn, GDPR SaaS Business Manager, said, “All organisations that collect, process and store PII must now put in place technical measures to manage the transparency and consent requirements of the new regulation.
“By adding GDPR Manager to Shred-it’s compliance portfolio, we are further showcasing our drive to help businesses both large and small protect what matters to them most; their reputation, their people and their customers’ data.”
The GDPR Manager tool enables businesses to take a holistic approach to data security and privacy, giving companies the ability to prove how it manages its data, which is critical to ensuring compliance with GDPR.
Hagelthorn continued: “As a result of developing this tool to meet the expectations of the ICO, purchasing and using GDPR Manager will help demonstrate that a company is working towards compliance. We all know the large fines and potential ramifications of non-compliance, so we’re excited to be able to provide our customers and other businesses with a clear and structured pathway to GDPR compliance.”
