Keeping information about clients and staff confidential makes clear business sense but it is also required by law. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) defines the ethical handling of personal data. This 16 page booklet introduces the key elements of GDPR, covering the following topics:

  • What is GDPR
  • GDPR Terminology
  • GDPR Principles
  • Individual Rights
  • Accountability
  • Security
  • International Transfers
  • Personal Data Breaches
  • GDPR Checklist

In addition to personal data which is subject to GDPR, organisations store confidential and sensitive information which could put them at significant financial, operational or reputational risk if it ended up in the wrong hands. This content is not subject to GDPR, but has other potentially critical consequences. Information risk should be approached exactly as any other business risk, evaluating the risk of misuse against the level of risk the Board is prepared to accept. The booklet goes on to cover this as follows:

  • Information Risk
  • Protecting Reputation and Advantage
  • Information Governance
  • Benefits of Effective IG
  • 10 Steps to Better IG
  • Information Audits

Having delivered hundreds of information management projects of all sizes across the globe, our “10 steps to better IG” guide is included in the booklet and offers expert advice on achieving better Information Governance.
