Project set-up: Covers allocating roles to those to be involved in GDPR efforts – such as a data protection officer – training and establishing the rights of data subjects, etc.

Discover: The Discover Stage of assessment/audit is centered around discovery and more in-depth gap analysis. This stage is one of discovery and mapping and anything that is relevant in the scope of the GDPR. An organization will need to gain insights into current practices on various levels such as audit capabilities/methods, where data sits (data discovery), which processes are involved, how data is processed, how privacy and security practices function, who is responsible and accountable today, what kinds of systems, networks and databases come into the equation, etc. 

Plan: The Plan Stage is about preparing for the GDPR actions to be taken (as identified in the Discover Stage). Once an organization knows where the gaps are it’s time to get strategic and plan what needs to be done to close the gaps and address any other areas which have been identified.

Protect: The Protect Stage is centered around taking action and implementing the measures that have been planned for (see Plan Stage). These include executing & monitoring relevant business processes, managing consent and data subject access rights, etc. and delivering in-depth training.

Enhance: The Enhance Stage is centered around managing/evaluating and improving/adapting. Once plans are implemented, the work is not done - there will always be a need to improve and adapt. activity: monitor, assess, audit, report and evaluate adherence to GDPR standards outcome: ongoing monitoring and reporting 

Contains 48 documents, including checklists, schedules, sample templates, forms and data registers.
