GDPR: A year later
According to a research brief from SiriusDecisions, customers are increasingly looking for expertise in privacy strategy, planning and management. You can help your customers by interlocking with their privacy teams to ensure appropriate certification processes are in place for managing sensitive data.
To begin, you can audit existing data processing procedures, checking for compliant practices and credible software. Then you can educate customers on privacy issues and their obligations, especially in the case of regional variations. Remember, the current regulations apply to companies that process the data of EU citizens regardless of where these companies are located.
Lastly, you can help customers establish systems to monitor ongoing compliance. This may even be an opportunity for upgrading to marketing automation tools, which offer greater effectiveness and long-term cost efficiency.
One way to position your organization as a trusted leader in data privacy is to partner with a provider that offers solutions that can help. SAP offers partners and customers Process Control (PC); a wide range of integrated data management and governance, risk and compliance (GRC) solutions; and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solutions to track and manage consent requests aiming to help satisfy the IT fundamentals. With compliance as a top priority, we’ve provided substantial background and information available at SAP.com/GDPR.
