We’ve met with lots of companies, large and small, working towards GDPR compliance. We didn’t start out as GDPR experts, but we’ve learned a lot from our customers about the common challenges that most companies are facing, and the mistakes made when getting started with a complex compliance project.
At a high level, we’ve learned 3 lessons:
- Compliance is a continuous process, not a periodic one.
- It’s important to involve domain experts in your organization to help get an accurate understanding of the current status of systems and processes.
- If you think structured with your compliance documentation, not only will it make the compliance process easier, it will also empower you to use the data you collect for other digital transformation initiatives.
