Specialized GDPR services for U.S. based organizations

________

U.S. based organizations have already seen signs that E.U. clients are leaving and looking for GDPR compliant alternatives.  It is more important now than ever before for U.S. organizations to take action to keep their clients because once they are lost, they will be extremely hard to get back.

E.U. organizations are encouraged to undertake a Data Mapping exercise and this triggers a due diligence request and might highlight as nonconformity if the company is not part of the EU-US privacy shield because the U.S. will count as not being on the “Adequacy List” which is a list of countries vetted as safe for cross-border transfers of PII (Personally Identifiable Information).

How do you know if GDPR applies to your organisation?

________

Do you have customers or partners in the E.U.?
If so the GDPR will definitely applies to you and you need to be compliant to continue working with or supplying those organisations.

Do you Accept E.U. currencies?
If you accept these currencies then it can be demonstrated that you are targeting E.U. data subjects.

Are your “Target Markets” E.U. Data Subjects?
Travel and Tourism, Hosting and Data Centres, Software, Cloud Service Providers and E-commerce are some of the hardest hit sectors.

Is your Marketing / Strong Web Presence written in E.U. languages or uses E.U. terms/references?
If you have content written in E.U. friendly terms or languages then it can be argued that you are actively targeting E.U. data subjects.

How we can help

________

GDPR123 are compliance experts who can guide you through the process of becoming GDPR compliant so that you can build client confidence, help you satisfy due diligence investigations as well as avoid fines and remedial actions imposed by the Supervisory Authorities.

  • Stage 1 Audit / Gap Analysis
    Your organization will be measured against the GDPR which will result in a Non-conformity report.  This is a clear set of instructions that explain what you need to do to become compliant.
  • Prepare a Legal Register and Documents
    Register an interest in the EU as well as review/supply policies, procedures and plans.
  • Cross border transfers
    Make your organization complaint with Cross Border transfers of PII (Personally Identifiable Information).
  • Prepare a Due Diligence Pack
    Quickly turn around and satisfy Due Diligence enquiries.
  • Cyber Insurance Review
    One advantage many U.S. organizations have over their E.U. cousins is their recognition of the culture of Compensation Claims. 40% of U.S. firms have Cyber Insurance compared to only 0.03% of U.K. organizations.
  • Review Web Operations
    This includes Web-based forms to ensure they obtain appropriate and affirmed consent as well as ensuring they are unambiguous.
  • Training and Awareness
    With 8 in 10 data breaches resulting from Human Error they GDPR requires organization to implement appropriate organisational measures to ensure the safeguarding of PII (Personally Identifiable Information).  This includes appropriate levels of awareness training.
  • Supervisory Authorities
    EU companies deal with one, their own but you may have 28 soon to be 27 with Brexit!
  • Dealing with Brexit
    We understand the implications of Brexit and will advise you accordingly as the various stages of Brexit are implemented.
  • 72 Hour Breach Notifications
    It is important to have an appropriate and tested plan in place for data breaches.  Failure to have this in place can attract a penalty of between 2% of your global turnover or 10,000,000 Euro (Approx. $12m) or 4% of your global turnover 20,000,000 Euro (Approx. $24m).  The fines are calculated to whichever is the greater and are purposely designed to be dissuasive.
  • Handle SARs (Subject Access Requests and Rights Requests)
    GDPR gives Data Subjects human rights in terms of their Data and with this comes their right to request the Data Controller or Data Processor to undertake certain actions.  Failure to respond to a request in time is a breach if their rights and is taken very seriously so you need to be prepared.
  • Determine and Appoint/Act as a DPO Data Processing Officer
    In some cases a DPO needs to be appointed.  We will help you determine if you need a DPO or make a recommendation if it would be advisable.
