GDPR Audit Guide for Information Governance and Records Management Professionals!

March 1, 2018

Enforcement of the GDPR will start on May 18, 2018, and fines for non-compliance are heavy. You’re probably received an avalanche of emails about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Everyone who has any type of solution is talking about it. You probably don’t know it, but you have holes in your GDPR compliance! There are 181 GDPR Mandates that focus on information governance that are not included in any other Authority Document, or addressed by any standard GDPR solution! A joint webinar was held by  ARMA and Unified Compliance to teach about the GDPR Audit Guide that allows you to stay in compliance and avoid heavy fines. In summary, almost every U.S. organization must comply with the GDPR. Don’t scramble at the last minute to plan for compliance. Watch this and learn more.

Who Must Comply with the GDPR?
The GDPR states that the rules follow the data. Therefore, any company that deals with information related to one or more EU citizens must comply.

ARMA and Unified Compliance Work Together to Fill the Gaps
In an effort to bridge this gap in compliance coverage, ARMA International, working with the Unified Compliance team, created the GDPR Audit Guide for Information Governance and Records Management Professionals. The Guide contains audit questions for all 181 mandates. The mandates are mapped to the Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles® (Principles) published by ARMA, and the Common Controls Hub® (CCH®) developed by Unified Compliance. We’ve done the work of identifying these “hidden” mandates, and providing an audit guide that will allow you to quickly test for compliance. Using this Guide, you’ll become the GDPR compliance hero in your organization.

The GDPR Audit Guide Webinar
Use the Guide to ensure information governance and records management compliance with the GDPR. Jocelyn Gunter, CEO at ARMA and Dorian Cougias, co-founder of Unified Compliance presented the webinar to give  an authoritative view of how and why the Guide maps the audit questions with both the Principles and the CCH. This wasn't an informational webinar.  Watch and learn how to obtain a tool that you must have to achieve GDPR compliance and avoid large penalties. The webinar was held on January 11, 2018 at 8 a.m. PST.
