The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive data privacy law that came into effect in May 2018. It is designed to empower individuals and give them greater control over their personal data. GDPR applies to businesses that collect, process, and store the personal information of individuals residing in the European Union (EU).




Data security is critical


In the realm of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), data security is paramount. It involves protecting personal data from unauthorized access, alteration, and destruction. GDPR mandates swift action in the event of a breach, emphasizing the importance of effective security measures.


Crucial principles, such as data minimization and purpose limitation, underscore the need for collecting only necessary information for legitimate purposes. Data security ensures adherence to these principles by preventing the collection of excessive or unrelated data.


User consent and transparent processing are central to GDPR, requiring organizations to obtain explicit consent and process data securely. Additionally, Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs) highlight the importance of identifying and mitigating risks associated with data processing activities.



Who is subject to the GDPR?


The GDPR affects all organisations that process personal data and operate within or sell goods to the EU. The term “processing” refers to nearly every type of data usage, including collection, storage, retrieval, alteration, storage, and destruction.


The GDPR applies to both ‘controllers’ and ‘processors’ of data. The purpose and manner in which data is processed are determined by data controllers. Data processors are any third-party who processes data on behalf of a controller.



The significance of ensuring personal data security


In the GDPR domain, safeguarding personal data is of utmost importance. Enacted in 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation sets stringent standards for data privacy. Organizations must proactively implement measures like data minimization and privacy by design to thwart potential breaches. Compliance isn’t merely a legal mandate but also a trust-building initiative. Individuals are more inclined to interact with businesses that prioritize the security of their personal information. Non-compliance carries severe consequences, underscoring the vital role of robust cybersecurity within this regulatory framework.



Why choose us?

EywaSystems can effectively implement a risk-based GDPR compliance programme for your business.


Our core activities include:

Eyawasystems walks you through a discovery exercise to create your data processing records. This diligence becomes a valuable information resource throughout your initial GDPR compliance project and beyond such as Global Retailer’s Customer Database, Healthcare Provider’s Patient Records, Financial Institution’s Customer Information, E-commerce Platform’s User Data, and Telecommunications Company’s Subscriber Information.

EywaSystems will review your organization’s privacy policy and, if necessary, propose improvements to the existing policy or write a new one, if necessary, to comply with the GDPR. If consent is the most appropriate legal basis for certain data processing operations in your organization, we will analyse your organization’s current data collection points and recommend ways to implement consent management or improve the quality of consent acquired.

EywaSystems will examine each information system that is subject to the GDPR and identify cases where data subject rights (right to be forgotten, right to access, correct, and update one’s personal data, right to restrict processing, and so on) are not supported. Our team will assist you in scoring or ranking all compliance gaps and developing practical solutions to address critical compliance risks.
The GDPR imposes specific obligations on you and any service organization you hire to process personal data on your behalf. EywaSystems has developed a mature methodology, including an internal knowledge base, for successfully negotiating GDPR-compliant data processing addenda with common service providers.

In some cases, a data protection impact assessment must be performed before embarking on new data processing initiatives under the GDPR.

EywaSystems provides comprehensive support and unbiased advice on your DPIA, as well as a DPIA template and documented DPIA procedure template for you to use in conducting your own DPIAs.


A DPIA should include:

        –  A systematic description of processing operations, including the purpose for processing.


        – An assessment of the necessity and proportionality of the processing operations.


        – An assessment of the risks to individuals’ rights and freedoms.


       – Measures to address identified risks, including safeguards and mechanisms to ensure personal data protection.



* A Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) is a process that identifies and mitigates risks associated with the processing of personal data as early as possible. DPIAs are critical tools for mitigating risk and demonstrating GDPR compliance.

EywaSystems offers a comprehensive privacy and security training programme: This integrated programme includes training content that can be applied throughout your organisation. Detailed reporting supports in the documentation and demonstration of compliance.
