Nog maar negen maanden voor Algemene verordening gegevensbescherming: bent u er klaar voor?

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Een nieuwe enquête van ISACA onder hooggeplaatste leidinggevenden en bestuursraden wijst uit dat minder dan een derde tevreden is over de voortgang van de voorbereidingen op de invoering van de Algemene verordening gegevensbescherming. Een zorgwekkende 35 procent weet niets over de progressie van hun organisatie.

Om organisaties te helpen bij de nakoming van de Algemene verordening gegevensbescherming en een verbeterde bescherming van de privacy van betrokkenen, heeft ISACA tien tips over de verordening opgesteld op basis van het framework COBIT.



GDPR Deadline Is 9 Months Away: Are You Ready?

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– According to a new ISACA survey of senior executives and boards of directors, fewer than one-third are satisfied with their organization’s progress to prepare for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). A concerning 35% are not aware of their organization’s progress.

To help organizations tackle GDPR compliance and better protect the data privacy of its stakeholders, global association ISACA has issued 10 tips for GDPR implementation using the COBIT governance framework. Among the tips:

1. Develop a sense of urgency—gaining executive-level support is key.

2. Think of GDPR as an opportunity—remember that the organization exists to create value for stakeholders, and applying the GDPR requirements adds value.

3. Inventory the organization’s current governance frameworks and practices, including the data protection plan.

4. Appoint a data privacy officer (DPO).

5. Plan and rehearse incident response plans.

These tips and much more are available in Adopting GDPR Using COBIT 5, available as a free download at http://www.isaca.org/privacy. ISACA will offer a free GDPR webinar on 17 September 2017. Rebecca Herold, the Privacy Professor, will present “How to Perform GDPR Data Protection Impact Assessments.”

“GDPR is more aggressive than previous privacy requirements, with tougher consequences for violation. It also doesn’t define what ‘reasonable’ means in terms of the required level of personal data protection, which gives the GDPR governing body wide latitude when it comes to assessing fines for noncompliance,” said Mark Thomas, CGEIT, CRISC, author of ISACA’s GDPR paper and president of Escoute Consulting. “Companies equipped with a solid governance structure have already won half the battle. For those without, this is an important driver for adopting one.”

ISACA has also issued a new book titled Implementing a Privacy Protection Program. This book provides practical guidance on using COBIT to support key privacy principles and achieve enterprisewide protection of personal information. This publication provides good privacy practices all organizations should be following, regardless of whether they are impacted by GDPR.

Additional privacy resources ISACA offers include:

  • Privacy Principles and Program Management Guide
  • Data Privacy Audit/Assurance Program
  • Chicago Training Week
