Preparing Data for the EU GDPR Blog Series

The broad terms of the GDPR mean that any company with a website offering goods or services (including cloud services) to citizens of the EU may be subject to the regulation. This marks a significant change to the previous law, which most courts generally agree only maintains jurisdiction over companies with an established business in a particular state.

GDPR-Building Operational Readiness

The GDPR necessitates that organizations rethink privacy, security, and information governance strategies. Coming into compliance is no small undertaking. The IT obligations built into the GDPR require companies around the world to evolve operations, business processes, and program management.

AvePoint Compliance Solutions for GDPR allow you to implement a practical and operational methodology to build and scale your GDPR program.

GDPR-Building Operational Readiness

There are four operational steps to implementing an effective GDPR strategy. Following these steps, you can create policies and controls that reflect real-life data protection and risk management within your organization.


Based upon the organization’s policies and plans, understand what kind of sensitive data the company holds and how the systems it uses will collect and protect that data.


Protect sensitive information with controls for security, geography, retention, and classification – reducing risk across the enterprise.


Prove that the data that may put the organization at risk is in the proper systems.


Provide executive reports on key performance indicators (KPIs) or key control indicators (KCIs) to highlight areas in the organization that need to be addressed to reduce risk, or report on progress made throughout the lifecycle.

AvePoint's Solutions

Data Protection (or Privacy) Impact Assessments (DPIAs)

As defined by the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), DPIAs are a systematic process to “assess privacy risks to individuals in the collection, use, and disclosure of their personal data. DPIAs help identify privacy risks, foresee problems, and bring forward solutions.” The GDPR mandates that regular DPIAs be conducted.
