Organisations operating in the EU have until May 25th 2018 to achieve compliance with the GDPR. At that time, they will be required to maintain ongoing compliance and to demonstrate compliance. Controllers and processors help these organisations operationalise compliance, in other words, implement privacy management that results in ongoing compliance with the GDPR.

There are 55 GDPR common compliance privacy management activities that need to be implemented, maintained, and evidenced to achieve ongoing compliance to the GDPR. For these 55 activities, Nymity Planner™ provides:

  1. GDPR Compliance Status Report
    Know the controller’s status for GDPR Compliance at all times. Understand where compliance has not been achieved, the steps to achieve compliance, the required resources necessary, and the owner(s) who are responsible for demonstrating compliance.

  2. GDPR Compliance Progress Reporting
    Monthly progress reports to achieve, and once achieved, maintain GDPR privacy management compliance.

  3. Customized or Out-of-the Box Compliance
    The common GDPR compliance privacy management activities are configured in Nymity Planner™ and for organisations that wish to combine other compliance obligations, for example, other laws or their BCR, the Compliance privacy management activities can be configured specifically.

  4. GDPR Accountability
    Embed responsibility throughout the controller and assign owner(s) to the GDPR compliance privacy management activities, monitor their progress, and obtain the evidence of initial and ongoing compliance.

  5. Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs)
    If the controller or processor has, or is planning BCRs, the Nymity Planner™ will help ensure ongoing BCRs compliance.

  6. DPO Integration
    Regardless of whether the controller’s strategy for the DPO is to take a proactive privacy management role or to take a more traditional monitoring and consultative role, Nymity Templates™ is an effective solution for the DPO or for the controllers to establish a DPO.

  7. Records Management
    This structured approach enables controllers to maintain records of processing activities (Article 28 and 65) and if necessary make them available to the Supervisory Authority.

  8. Processor Management
    Track GDPR compliance privacy management activities, the relevant processors, their owners, and the responsibilities.

  9. Risk Assessment
    GDPR outlines a risk based approach and Nymity Planner™ supports the approach with its 12 Risk Assessment privacy management activities which identify and assess risk based on the strategy chosen.

  10. Law Firm/Consulting Firm GDPR Integration
    At no additional costs, provide access to Nymity Planner™ to your trusted law firm or consulting firm as they help the organisation achieve, maintain, and communicate GDPR compliance.

  11. Communicate Your GDPR Story
    Record progress and the steps that were taken to achieve, and then maintain, GDPR Compliance.

  12. GDPR Supported Framework
    There are very few privacy management frameworks and the Nymity Privacy Management Accountability Framework™, which Nymity Planner™ is based on, encompasses privacy management activities that specify obligations in the GDPR.
