GDPR is the toughest privacy and security law in the world today. Failure to meet its standards can put your business at risk of facing millions of dollars in penalties. Avoid significant fines while maintaining the trust of your customers with our GDPR Compliance Management Software.
Why a Risk-Based Approach to GDPR Compliance is important:
Taking a risk-based approach to GDPR compliance enables you to determine where you are not currently complying with GDPR and where you’re most at risk for noncompliance.
Assess your most relevant risks.
When managing such a large volume of data, it’s inevitable that errors will occur. By taking a risk-based approach to GDPR, you’ll assess your risks ahead of time to know how to better manage your customers’ data and eliminate those risks.
Having a strong foundation of thoroughly assessed risks allows you to put better controls, policies and procedures in place to move towards compliance. Then, you can better determine where you’re most susceptible to error and adjust as needed.
Monitor your compliance over time.
Utilizing the best GDPR compliance software is not a one-time exercise; you need to ensure that you’re following the proper procedures on an ongoing basis. A risk-based approach fosters an ongoing review process.
Connect your departmental efforts.
GDPR compliance may be compromised by any department across your entire organization. It’s important to take a risk-based approach to uncover exactly which processes are helping or hurting your status.
Report to prove compliance.
It’s not enough to simply say that you’re compliant – especially when it comes to GDPR. Generate robust reports that demonstrate your compliance over time to satisfy auditors and other inquiring minds.

Achieve GDPR Compliance & Data Protection with LogicManager
There are a variety of risks associated with not being GDPR compliant. Among the most notable are the hefty fines your organization will face – which are hefty not only if you are based in the EU or EEA, but also if you serve any customers that reside there. Another significant risk is the potential to lose customer trust. In today’s world, customers are more concerned than ever that their data is being used unlawfully. If your organization fails to disclose which data you’re tracking and how it’s being used, or you do not offer a mechanism for customers to request their data, you’ll likely lose their trust and ultimately their business. The same applies for your prospects: in today’s See-Through Economy, if someone reads in the news that your company was found guilty of noncompliance, they’ll be hesitant to sign on as a client.
LogicManager is a SaaS solution, which enables us to deploy customer environments virtually and efficiently. This way, customers are up and running in the system within 5 business days.
Business Case Justification
Investing in robust software to support your IT Governance/Security Incident area of business pays off in the form of both hard and soft dollar savings. Let’s first consider negligence: once you are found guilty of it, the fees associated with hiring lawyers, consultants and internal specialists can skyrocket quickly. Luckily, negligence is 100% preventable – but without the proper software, it’s 100% inevitable. In addition to the incident and negligent legal liabilities you will face after a failure in IT risk management, you will undoubtedly suffer losses as a result of customer non-renewals and/or cancellations. It’s critical to consider today’s consumer expectations; when people find out their data is being taken advantage of without their agreement, they lose confidence in your ability to protect them. When customers are a key differentiator for your business, damage to your reputation = damage to your revenue.
GDPR compliance is a partial yet integral part of IT risk management, and the implications of failing to comply are enormous. The GDPR sets forth fines of up to 10 million euros, or in the case of an undertaking, up to 2% of its entire global revenue of the preceding fiscal year (whichever is higher).
What is GDPR (and why should you worry about it)?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a law on data protection and privacy that is most directly applicable to those in the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA). However, GDPR is one of the first of what will likely be many privacy regulations with a global reach; the GDPR also imposes obligations onto any organization that is targeting or collecting data related to any person or organization based in the EU.
The regulation was put into effect in 2018, and it is the toughest privacy and security law in the world today. That’s why it’s considered best practice to review your IT policies to ensure alignment with the GDPR at least annually. Those who violate its standards are at risk of facing penalties reaching into the tens of millions of dollars.
If your organization builds a strong GDPR compliance program now, you will be positioned as a data transparency pioneer. You will not only be able to easily adapt your program over time as new regulations come out, but you’ll also build a proven track record to help maintain and gain customer trust.
