Oxial and GDS, a partnership to guarantee GDPR compliance

January 29, 2018

The clock is ticking when it comes to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect. The past few years have seen much discussion and debate about what GDPR entails, how it will protect consumers and what it means for the organisations that store consumer data.  

We are approaching the time when organisations need to stop talking and start doing. Yet a recent survey (December 2017) of 400 European business leaders by the European Business Awards revealed that an astonishing 92% of organisations are not yet ready for GDPR. 

28 per cent of those surveyed were completely unaware of the regulation they will have to adhere to, while 26 per cent admitted their organisation will not be compliant by the May 2018 deadline. This lack of know-how as to how best to approach GDPR is entirely understandable, particularly for smaller and midsized firms that might lack the experience and resource required to get ready for GDPR. 

So for those firms that are struggling with GDPR, OXIAL has recently launched its new OXIAL GDPR EXPRESS solution. It’s a solution based on OXIAL’s years of experience in risk management, IT security and compliance, it can be live and operational in less than 90 days and it guarantees 100% GDPR compliance. 

Data security 

One of the most important elements of GDPR requirements – and indeed the entire reasoning behind the legislation – is keeping consumer data safe, secure and private. That’s why we are working again with our partner Global Data Sentinel (GDS).  

GDS is a New York-based leading cyber security solutions provider whose platform not only offers advanced security controls and features, but is built to be practical, user friendly and meet the growing needs from the convergence of risk and compliance. 

Earlier in 2017 OXIAL signed an agreement with GDS (and Mice360) to jointly develop the next-generation of GRC solutions for the public and private sector markets, and this partnership on the OXIAL GDPR EXPRESS is an exciting and innovative example of what can be achieved. Data security offered by GDS includes:
