Data protection/EU GDPR compliance

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will supersede all EU member states’ current national data protection laws based on the 1995 Data Protection Directive (DPD) on 25 May 2018. It introduces a number of key changes for all organizations that process personal information, including new rules on international data transfers, documenting data processing activities, performing data protection impact assessments, and appointing data protection officers.

Non-compliant organizations face considerably greater penalties under the Regulation than under current data protection laws—up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million ($21 million). In addition, data subjects will have the right to seek judicial remedies against data controllers and processors, as well as the right to obtain compensation for damages occurring as a result of GDPR breaches.

If you’re undertaking a GDPR compliance project, IT Governance can provide everything you need.



Products and services

The GDPR states that data controllers must implement "appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure and to be able to demonstrate that the processing is performed in accordance with this Regulation."

These measures must include the implementation of appropriate data protection policies, and controllers may use adherence to approved codes of conduct or management system certifications "as an element by which to demonstrate compliance with [their] obligations."

An ISO 27001-compliant ISMS (information security management system) should be the starting point for all organizations seeking to demonstrate that they have implemented these measures. We’ve been helping organizations implement ISO 27001 for over a decade and have led more than 400 certifications to date. What’s more, we offer a 100% guarantee of successful certification.

Here are a few ways we can help meet your GDPR compliance needs.

  • Documentation toolkits

    Creating documentation for a management system is never easy. Fortunately, IT Governance’s documentation toolkits contain fully customizable templates that have been written and field-tested by our consultants:

  • Penetration testing

    Regular penetration testing is the most effective way of demonstrating that exploitable vulnerabilities in your company’s Internet–facing applications and infrastructure have been identified, and it allows you to apply appropriate mitigation.
