Lockpath for GDPR Compliance

Challenges managing GDPR compliance

No privacy regulation causes as much worldwide confusion about privacy as the General Data Protection Regulation, better known as GDPR. People aren’t just confused about GDPR requirements, they also worry about fines for non-compliance. Complying with GDPR changes the way an organization manages privacy data, and that’s never an easy thing to do.

Common challenges with GDPR compliance include:

  • Understanding the regulation.
    Interpreting requirements of GDPR is harder as they’re more guidance-oriented than prescriptive, which is easier to manage as check-box compliance.
  • Using assessments to protect data.
    GDPR mandates a data privacy impact assessment, which is unlike other assessments and with the pressure of more at stake.
  • Knowing data subject rights.
    Data subjects have multiple rights, not just Article 17’s Right to be Forgotten. Many organizations focus on Article 17 and accidently deny data subjects their rights, resulting in citations or fines.
  • Adopting specific processes.
    GDPR requires organizations to develop specific processes governing internal records, data breach notifications, appointing a Data Protection Officer and more.  It’s transformative but also painful to adapt and it requires leadership.
  • Going beyond breach notification requirement.
    Managing conflicting priorities like crisis management and PR, along with GDPR’s three-day breach notification, can be nerve-racking.

With Lockpath you can:

  • Govern change more effectively.
    Manage risks brought by change and growth by assessing key aspects of business, including GDPR compliance.
  • Improve reporting and input decisions.
    Present compliance status and key metrics on single-plane-of-glass dashboards that can be shared with decision-makers and empower decision-making.
  • Comply with data subject rights.
    Process consumer requests from any channel and ensure privacy programs follow correct business processes.
  • Manage incident response in a timely manner.
    Manage and document incidents through every stage of the remediation process. The process is streamlined, which is ideal for GDPR Article 33’s short reporting window.

The Lockpath Difference

Lockpath equips organizations to comply with GDPR, as well as any changes that come to the regulation. Lockpath can also house multiple frameworks like ISO 27001 and NIST SP 800-53 within the platform. Having everything in Lockpath enables you to map common requirements together, helping you identify areas already in compliance and areas of non-compliance that require delta processes.

If your organization must comply with GDPR, Lockpath will help you:

  • Get the right data when you need it. 
    Whether it’s a customer request to be forgotten or scanning tool results, multiple compliance document versions, vendor risk assessments or audit results, Lockpath manages the data so you can take immediate action.
  • Connect everything in one platform. 
    Manage multiple workstreams and conduct all risk, compliance and audit activities within Lockpath. The platform’s integrated design allows you to use a single data set so everything from policies to incident response plans always have the latest data. Lockpath will even alert you when a key resource, asset or requirement changes.
  • Streamline the information gathering process. 
    Lockpath helps you take charge of the information and evidence gathering processes. The platform issues contextual data requests to identified business and asset owners and ties the request and gathered evidence to your GDPR requirements.
  • Bring simplicity to dashboards and reporting. 
    Lockpath’s real-time, drag-and-drop reporting engine allows users to create and configure their own dashboards and reports. This, coupled with Lockpath’s role-based permissions, ensures that the right people receive the right information at the right time in the context they require.
  • Orchestrate a multi-regulation management program. 
    With Lockpath, you are not limited to just GDPR compliance. Leverage the platform to integrate and manage multiple risk and compliance frameworks such as ISO 27001, NIST 800-53, and the UK Cybersecurity Essentials. You can even create your own custom frameworks.
