GDPR Gap Analysis

Regional GDPR Gap Analysis For Your Privacy Program

Do you have a clear idea of how well each of your regional business units is handling the processing of personal data? Is each aligned with their respective supervisory authority guidelines and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?

Many companies lack an understanding of how well they are handling privacy compliance among disparate regions in different Member states. Having an overall picture across regions is a useful benchmark for understanding overall privacy risks and compliance levels.

GDP Gap Analysis Solutions for Companies

The GDPR imposes comprehensive legal obligations on companies with regard to the regular processing of personal data. As part of a GAP analysis, the current status of the data protection organization is analyzed with the help of document reviews and video conference interviews with key internal stakeholders.

The results are evaluated according to the assessment methodology (completeness and maturity/risk).

The following building blocks of the data protection organization are covered in the GAP-Analysis:

  • Data protection organization and responsibilities
  • HR and external contact points
  • The register of processing activities
  • Effectiveness of IT infrastructure
  • Documentation of the technical and organizational measures
  • Effective extinguishing rules and an effective extinguishing concept
  • Appropriate processes for compliance with data protection requirements
  • How comprehensive and accessible is the documentation of the data protection organization.

The regional GAP-Analysis is a conformity check. The GAP-Analysis seeks to find gaps in compliance and Data Privacy Management Systems (DPMS). Our analysis comes with five levels of conformity of the current Data Privacy Management System (DPMS) (2+/3-).

Conformity levels are then translated into five levels of risk (no risk to high risk) for the entity.

Benefits of the Regional GDPR Gap Analysis

The regional GAP-Analysis provides a high-level understanding of privacy maturity across the organization and GDPR compliance thresholds. Identifies areas of low, medium and high risk. It also documents areas of key needs and those with room for improvement and helps identify areas of prioritization and focus.
