The GDPR solution overview:

Agile Solutions is a highly specialised data management consulting company. We work with clients either onsite or from our secure offices to help them access, manage, safeguard, and drive value from their data - transforming it into a real business asset. When it comes to the GDPR we offer a six-step programme to help you get ready for May 2018. We can support you with assessments, planning, technology selection and deployment as well as supporting the infrastructure. We’re Agile by name, agile by nature.

The GDPR solution overview:

Epiq provides the people, process and technology to enable organisations to identify and record the personal data they hold, where it came from and who it’s shared with, as a first step towards assessing their compliance with the GDPR. Epiq provides ongoing data assessment and remediation to help organisations manage risk, minimise data held and respond efficiently and accurately to requests for access to information from data subjects.

The GDPR areas of access:

Epiq supports 6 Steps To The GDPR-Readiness:

1) Retention/deletion: We help ensure that you keep only the data you are lawfully allowed to retain, mitigate risk and reduce storage costs by helping you actively manage your data.

2) The GDPR data map: We make the origins and locations of personal data available via an online questionnaire and comprehensive data map.

3) Data validation: We help you identify instances of high risk data by conducting information audits to actively review files stored across corporate networks and devices.

4) Data loss investigation and review: We provide a pre-breach inventory service to document data stored on devices such as laptops. If devices are later lost, we rapidly assess whether the lost data includes personal data, reducing investigation time lines and helping to mitigate damage and reputational issues.

5) Data reconstruction: We help you reconstitute lost data using information from networks, application log files and backup tapes.

6) Data subject rights of access, portability, rectification and erasure: We help you produce timely, accurate responses to data subject’s requests by helping you search, identify, retrieve, redact (where necessary) and export data from your systems efficiently, cost effectively and defensibly.

Our Information Governance team has vast experience of working with information management systems (both legacy and existing) and accessing data wherever it resides.

IBM COMMITS TO THE GDPR READINESS

IBM currently complies with privacy laws around the world. IBM also prepared to comply with the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (The GDPR) which went into effect 25th May 2018. IBM has established a global project to prepare for the GDPR, both for our internal processes and for our commercial offerings. IBM recognises that our customers will rely on IBM’s offerings and technical assistance to achieve GDPR compliance within their own organisations and IBM is well-positioned to meet this critical need.

As part of its GDPR project, IBM is enhancing its ongoing commitment to privacy by design. IBM is working to embed data protection principles even more deeply into its business processes, with the objective that technical and organisational security measures limit, by default, the amount and use of personal data to what is specifically required. This work will also strengthen controls already in place to limit access to personal data, including with respect to mobile applications that rely on sensible default settings to prevent personal data from being inadvertently shared with others.
