Our GDPR Compliance Services
As specialists in data, we have the multi-disciplined expertise to help your business navigate the upheaval which GDPR will cause. We’ll also ensure that you are properly protected from the risks that non-compliance and breaches represent. The Comma team are data experts and take a data first view on GDPR: if you are able to prove that your data is understood and is under control then compliance falls naturally into place.
We service clients in 3 key areas:
Discovery involves using advanced discovery tools (and interviewing people) to understand where personal data lives across your enterprise and cataloguing the results. If done correctly this may be all you need to respond to data access requests and to purge on demand - although it’s time-consuming and manual.
Readiness involves using data quality tools and external data sources to improve the quality of your data. Once discovered, data can be compared between systems and to validated sources. We use our partners Experian, D&B - to give a level of confidence that, when challenged, you avoid returning inconsistent data.
Governance introduces policies, processes and technologies to control the distribution, use and accuracy of personal data, and to give you a single port of call to find (and purge) personal data. This could involve the implementation of technologies such as Master Data Management to give a single view of a person.
The ramifications of GDPR in 2018 can seem daunting. The sooner you prepare your business for the inevitable, the better your strategies and culture for compliance will be.
