Our information-driven society is experiencing an Information Revolution where technocrats are creating massive amounts of data about individuals and their locations as well as products or services. It’s time to add significant concepts and principles to our already established data management procedures.
Since May 25, 2018, the EU has implemented the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to address the most pressing concerns. There must be clear definitions of “data governance,” “data processing activities,” and “data compliance” in a data-driven environment. All companies that handle personal information must do so in a manner that is consistent with the law.
With the GDPR, data privacy laws across Europe have been brought together into a single set of rules to address the needs of the digital age. As part of the EU’s new Data Protection Regulation, EU citizens will have greater access to and control over their personal information.
Commitment to a Code of Conduct
“We or us or our” (CMI Consulting LLC) is fully committed to ensuring that our client’s personal information is protected by all applicable laws, including but not limited to the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Customers’ success is important to CMI Consulting LLC, and we take data privacy very seriously. When it comes to protecting our users’ private data, we’ve never wavered in our commitment to doing everything possible. To meet the GDPR’s requirements, we must, of course, maintain this program up to date and expanded.
Planned Response to the GDPR
Organizations in the European Union (EU) and those that provide products and services to EU residents or collect and analyze data related to EU residents, regardless of where they are situated, are subject to new restrictions under the GDPR.
CMI Consulting LLC is prepared for GDPR by focusing on the following aspects:
Enhancing personal privacy rights while building on existing security and business continuity management policies, methods, and controls.
To help GDPR customers comply, the company is conducting gap and privacy assessments with obligatory breach reporting and hefty penalties for noncompliance.
Increased responsibility for securing data, implementing compliance policies, and building a stronger secure platform for clients by taking ownership of their data and examining their deployment alternatives.
Helping customers understand and prepare for the GDPR.
It is necessary to modify all of our data contracts to fulfill the additional obligations of the GDPR.
In the process of implementing an exclusive deletion mechanism to meet the new Right to Erasure obligation, we are also evaluating how long we retain and preserve information. When it comes to these and other data subjects’ rights, the company is very aware of when they apply, as well as any exclusions, response periods, and notification obligations.
Educating the employees about the GDPR’s new data privacy rights. All employees, whether they work in sales or security, must be aware of major changes, such as no longer posting costs for responding to requests for access.
Secure, encrypt, and maintain the integrity of the data by implementing new procedures and safeguarding measures. Particularly relevant to international data transfers and third-party disclosures.
Renovating mechanisms for recording consent so that we can demonstrate an affirmative opt-in and time and date records; and an easy-to-use option for withdrawing consent whenever we want.
Furthermore, compliance is a shared obligation between an organization and its customers, so consumers must also change their business processes, data management practices, and interconnections to meet the requirements. For CMI Consulting LLC, the ultimate goal is to allow its clients to select exactly which data sets can be accessed by whom in each department.
As a result, this safeguards against unauthorized access or use. For this reason, we make it a point to ensure that our customers retain full ownership of the data saved on our system. Customers can take advantage of the service’s capabilities to meet their GDPR requirements related to deletion, rectification, transfer, access to, and objection to the processing of personal data through suitable measures taken by the company.
Never Leave a Technical or Organizational Issue Unaddressed
Users’ personal information is well-protected because of CMI Consulting LLC’s keen eye for detail. The personal data we process is safeguarded by our organization using every possible precaution. To prevent unauthorized access, disclosure, or alteration of your personal information, we’ve implemented multiple levels of security precautions. This includes employee training, data encryption in storage and transit, password policy, one-time password, and two-factor authentication procedures, as well as other technical and organizational prevention, detection, and corrective controls.
To Begin the GDPR Process, Take Baby Steps:
A data privacy team has been established to provide the same degree of data protection and security across our organization to comply with the new data protection regulations. The team is in charge of raising GDPR awareness, evaluating our enthusiasm for GDPR, finding any shortcomings, and introducing new rules, procedures, and measures continuously, if necessary.
The GDPR training course has also been incorporated into our induction and annual training programs for our major business operations.
