Churchill Frank cited Jeff Cotrupe’s GDPR Survival Plan for organizations today on its blog in a piece titled How to increase data privacy and keep your information safe. In the piece, Churchill Frank cited the Stratecast report containing that GDPR Survival Plan, Our Detailed Privacy Blueprint: What All Parties Should Be Doing Right Now to Protect the People and Organizations They Care About, and a few of its many recommendations, including:
- To conduct an audit to determine exactly what personal data (as defined in the GDPR) you are currently collecting, where you are storing it and how long you are retaining it–and destroying any personal data you cannot justify for essential business purposes.
- That, while the GDPR applies to personal data held on citizens of the EU, organizations would do well to consider implementing data privacy best practices with regards to personal data on citizens of every region.
- To train every employee on privacy, because a company’s posture on privacy is only as strong as its weakest link.
