Here’s How you can Improve Your Data Security and Data Compliance

Most companies already have a basic data privacy policy they constructed alongside lawyers and tech experts to avoid facing serious fines and penalties. However, compliance isn’t just about focusing on current regulations and meeting the bare minimum requirement to avoid legal consequences.

Data privacy has been a hot topic in the tech world for years now. With every new technology come new regulations that require companies to completely re-examine the way they handle private data.

In order to create a long-lasting privacy policy, you need to be more proactive. Instead of focusing on short-term goals, you should focus on implementing some core data protection principles and creating a culture of compliance within your company.

Here are some steps you can take to make sure you’ll remain compliant with any and all data regulations in the long run.

Prepare for Audits in Advanced
As new regulations arise, surprise visits from auditors become more frequent. These audits can have a major impact on your business, even if you’re completely compliant.

The auditing process is time-consuming, and it requires a lot of resources to pull together all the records that the auditor needs to access. This can cause a disruption to your day-to-day operations and cause long-term damage to your business.

That’s why it’s important to have an audit preparation policy. Having everything in order is not only helpful in case an auditor shows up. The process of preparing for an audit will also help you see the blind spots and avoid any oversights that can leave you vulnerable and lead to compliance violations.

Prepare For Data Subject Access Requests
Another thing you should prepare for is granting users increased access to their data. Right to access is one of the main principles of GDPR, and it refers to granting your customers the right to see exactly what personal data you have on them. They also have the right to get this information easily and within a relatively short period of time.

As the data controller, your company needs to respond to these requests within a month’s time after the request has been submitted. Establishing a standardized process for handling subject access requests will help you to respond within the required time frame. Once a request is filed, you’ll need to provide data subjects with the following:

Whether their personal data is being processed
Why is it being processed
Which types of data you’re processing
Whether there are any automated processing in place for the data processing
Whether anyone else is getting a copy of that data
How long you’re planning to store their data
What is the source of the data in case you didn’t get it from the customer themselves
Correct or erase the data you have on the request of the data subject
Most of the time, you’ll be expected to respond to these requests free of charge. If the data is overly complicated or repetitive, you might be allowed to charge a fee or take longer than the usual one month, but you shouldn’t count on these benefits when developing your own response procedure. Use Automation To Help Prevent Human Error
Data compliance laws are complicated, and it can be challenging to ensure compliance, especially if you’re doing everything manually.

It’s difficult to know every nuance of these complex laws and regulations and keep them in mind while working on daily tasks. If your employees have to think about email retention policies every time they send a message, chances are, they’ll make some mistakes. Automating email management with email archiving and governance solutions can not only help you eliminate human errors, but also streamline email retention, ensure compliance and easily find data in case of an audit or data subject access requests.

Using dedicated software to streamline data management will ramp up your compliance efforts and encourage a company culture of taking compliance seriously. Educate your Employees about Compliance
Having an effective data protection policy is one thing, but ensuring that every single member of your company is actually following it is another.

In order to ensure regulatory compliance not only on paper but also in daily practice, it’s essential to make sure that your employees give compliance the necessary attention. You can spend thousands of dollars on lawyers and high end-software, but those investments will go to waste if your employees don’t understand the importance of compliance. You won’t be able to properly implement your data protection policies or resolve compliance issues if you fail to properly educate your staff.
