GDPR Compliance Monitoring

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be effective as of 25 May 2018. The GDPR repeals the current Directive 95/46/EC on data protection as implemented in Member State law. The GDPR entails the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data.  

Each EU citizen, whatever his or her nationality or residence, has the right to the protection of his or her personal data. Such protection is one of the fundamental rights and freedoms that is bestowed upon citizens in the EU. The GDPR has the aim to contribute to the accomplishment of an area of freedom, security and justice and of an economic union, to economic and social progress, to the strengthening and the convergence of the economies within the internal market, and to the well-being of natural persons.

The scale of the collection and sharing of personal data has increased significantly because of rapid technological developments and globalisation. Private companies and public authorities pursue their activities and thereby make use of personal data on an unprecedented scale. Natural persons increasingly make personal information available publicly and globally. Technology has transformed both the economy and social life, and should further facilitate the free flow of personal data while ensuring a high level of the protection of personal data.

The Compendor GDPR Compliance Monitoring Tool is geared towards making private companies compliant with the GDPR.

The tool allows you to keep track of the latest changes in the legislation and the impact of these changes on your company. The tool is an online knowledge-based tool that uses decision trees to simplify the process of assessing legal requirements. By using this tool, you are able to limit your efforts to those sections of the legislation that are relevant for your company and disregard the sections that do not apply. You will be able to provide a gap and impact assessment and deliver an accountability report on the implementation of the GDPR.

The tool, following the client assessment, will also determine in which risk bracket GDPR implementation falls for you. Companies that service distinct types of clients (wholesale only) or distinct types of natural persons (no minors), or do not collect distinct types of personal data (no sensitive data) are placed in a lower risk bracket. Nevertheless, companies are formed by natural persons, by personnel, the personal data of which is also in scope of GDPR. Ultimately, all companies that collect, process, store, adapt, align, combine or share personal data of clients and personnel, in the broadest meaning of the words, are obliged to comply with the GDPR as implemented in national laws.
