Personal information is handled everyday throughout the majority of business operations, be it when answering phone calls, taking note of a client’s mobile number, and even when accepting business cards.
The way businesses are required to handle personal information is governed by the General Data Protection Regulations (‘GDPR’ EU 2016/679), supported by the Malta Data Protection Act, which has been in place since May 2018.
Whereas businesses may have stored information “just in case it may be needed later”, the GDPR no longer allows this explicitly, and businesses may face heavy fines if they are not actively complying with the GDPR.
Complying with the GDPR will imply significant changes in how personal data is processed and stored for many businesses. This may be seen as cumbersome for many, on another light however it could also be an opportunity to declutter, re-organise and find ways to improve current processes on how businesses deal with personal information.
We can provide insight to businesses on the required changes and guidance through the duration of these changes to help to comply with the GDPR.
We have served several organisations in various industries, including healthcare and iGaming. With our solid repertoire of expertise in IT, Legal, Compliance and Risk, we offer a variety of personalised services catered to each organisation on how to best comply with the GDPR.
We carry out high-level assessments on the organisation’s current level of compliance with the GDPR. Through a compliance assessment, we will identify the gaps and provide a compliance roadmap for organisations on how to comply with the GDPR in a practical manner.
We offer organisations several implementation services post-compliance assessment. We offer the execution of the compliance roadmap, which includes drafting policies and procedures in line with the GDPR, drafting Controller-Processor data processing agreements, binding corporate rules, including privacy notices required for the organisation’s website. We also offer our services to verify that the organisation implemented the compliance roadmap and advise on any possible improvements.
We provide training sessions on the GDPR tailored to the requirements of the organisation, to both management and other staff depending on the client’s requirements. During these sessions, we will detail GDPR basic concepts and provide scenarios and case studies on how to address daily situations.
We offer the option for organisations to outsource to us the role of Data Protection Officer.
