Ongoing due-diligence is a vital component of your GDPR compliance. GDPR is not just about producing a pile of documents. GDPR should now be an integral part of how you operate as a business. Should you have a data protection issue, evidence of ongoing due-diligence might just save your skin.

Here at Optindigo, we understand the importance of being able to provide an evidence trail of ongoing compliance activities. We know from painful experience that being able to prove that you take data protection seriously can save a company from serious enforcement action.

However, it doesn’t need to be complicated. You should complete a high level review of your GDPR policies, Cyber Security, Staff Training requirements, and any GDPR issues you have experienced. You need to make sure you do this every month. Your Optindigo account provides checklists to help you do this. We can even store these completed checklists in your account so you can use them as evidence in the future should you need to.

GDPR is now part of what you do. Completing a monthly review will help you prove that you do actually do what you say you do.

Do it now! It will only take 10 minutes and might just prove invaluable in the future.

Good luck all.
