Xcina Case Study

Data Protection: Gap Analysis and Remediation for a Taiwanese Manufacturer

The client

A Taiwanese manufacturer of rugged laptops, notebooks, tablets and handheld devices which are supplied and serviced through a network of resellers worldwide.

The work

In preparing for the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation in Europe (GDPR) we undertook a gap analysis of the client operation to assess their readiness for GDPR and subsequently worked with their Data Protection Managers to address identified weaknesses.

How we helped

We produced a comprehensive gap analysis report, data permeation maps, and a prioritised remediation plan to reduce exposures and worked with the client to update policies and procedures, maintain records of processing, and deliver data protection training sessions to increase staff knowledge and awareness of GDPR.

Value added

Our knowledge of Data Protection and the GDPR regulation meant that we could determine weaknesses in client processes, provide guidance of necessary remediation focussed to client operations, and provide example documents that meet the Regulation. We were also able to provide targeted staff training, answer specific queries and concerns from staff and increase awareness to prepare for GDPR.
