Data protection and privacy risks have now become essential considerations for an effective regulatory compliance framework. As issues regarding data breaches and cybersecurity increase, regulators across the globe are now largely enforcing data privacy and regulatory laws. Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is soon approaching its first-year anniversary and the United States plan to implement their own privacy laws, with the first being the Californian Privacy law which will come into force on the 1st January, 2020.
Despite significant enforcement activity and new laws being enacted, complying with these regulations still continues to be a challenge for the majority of organizations. Many organizations lack an established plan for GDPR compliance, and on top of that, issues such as upgradation of privacy programs and increased fines and sanctions have created a significant ripple in the compliance space. What organizations require today is a robust technology that not only streamlines and automates data privacy compliance processes but also guides customers in preparing for and operating in compliance with the GDPR. That’s precisely where MetaCompliance marks its presence with its suite of cloud-based compliance and privacy management solutions.
MetaCompliance’s suite of staff awareness and privacy management solutions is integrated with robust functionality that includes policy management, eLearning, phishing awareness, incident management, and privacy management.
