Not Ready for GDPR – #GDPRhacks #freakout

Published: 26 April, 2018

In plain English, the GDPR gives individuals in the EU control over their own data—what’s collected, how it’s used, how long it’s kept, and more.

If you’re reading this post in April or May 2018, you have our permission to freak out.  We have a dedicated library at ProFundCom where we have have a whole set of GDPR resources – but that may be a bit late now.

So here are some hacks to get you started – Good Luck

Hack 0 – Cover your

  • Look to get Cyber security insurance
  • Advise your legal team of the state of GDPR readiness you are in (or not)

Hack 1 – Policies

  • Create a Privacy statement for your website (example)
  • Create a GDPR statement for you website (example)

Hack 2 – Consent

  • You do not need to discard all consent (source)
  • Conduct a review on current consent management process
  • Post May 25, use an online consent form to track consent (providers)

Hack 3 – Suppliers

  • Send suppliers a GDPR questionnaire  (sample)
  • Make sure you can answer these questions as well

Hack 4 – Internal

  • Read this Privacy Policy from gdprprivacypolicy.org
  • Create an online project with all the items in there
  • That is your to-do list for the next 3 – 6 months
