GDPR & data protection

What is GDPR and data protection?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is more than a regulatory framework; it represents a paradigm shift in how organisations approach data protection, requiring them to adopt a holistic and proactive approach to information governance. Under GDPR, organisations are tasked with not only protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of personal data but also ensuring transparency, accountability, and ethical use of information assets. Compliance with GDPR is not just a legal obligation, but a testament to ethical and responsible data management practices.

Effectively managing personal information and meeting data protection compliance obligations can be a real test of how well you manage your information. To meet your GDPR obligations you must first understand what personal data you hold.  If you already have a comprehensive and up to date Information Asset Register (IAR), and GDPR processes in place,  you are well on your way to compliance. If not, Metataxis can help you find the most effective ways to identify and manage your personal data.

Why you need GDPR and data protection

There’s a lot to consider to ensure you are compliant with today’s data protection requirements. Compliance requires many different actions involving multiple parts of your organisation including HR, Communications, IT and governance. Here at Metataxis, we understand how difficult it is to coordinate and hard to know where to even begin to meet the strict GDPR requirements.

Effective information governance and records management are foundational to GDPR compliance. Without a solid foundation in these areas, organisations risk falling short of GDPR requirements and facing severe consequences.
