William Jackson | Nov. 14, 2017
Running behind on meeting the EU’s new GDPR privacy rules? These tools can help you meet the requirements and stay in compliance by deadline.

Opus Global’s Third-Party Compliance software as a service (SaaS) solution moves assessment into the supply chain by identifying third parties with whom their customers’ personal data is shared. Questionnaires about data security controls are automatically sent to third-party users. The tool analyzes responses to determine whether they comply with GDPR requirements and provides recommendations for remediation. This allows the organization to fully document who has access to covered data and how it is protected. This SaaS solution requires no hardware, software, or IT infrastructure.

GDPR implementation tools is an automated consent management solution to make websites compliant with GDPR requirements for obtaining informed consent from users for collection and use of data. It also allows them to opt out. Once installed, the script provides granular page-by-page notifications for the appropriate opt-in and opt-out requirements. Screenshots are saved to document user consent and are available through a dashboard. The solution is formatted for both desktop and mobile devices and includes a plugin for users of WordPress. Documentation includes the user IP address and location and can be easily exported for business and regulatory uses.

Datum Information Value Management for GDPR is a special edition of its information governance software that is preconfigured with GDPR base processes, rules, standards, templates, and frameworks. It aligns an organization’s data with regulatory requirements, identifying the data that is covered under the EU privacy rules and the capabilities and controls that are required. The tool discovers the data and how it is used and maps it to the organization’s governance process. This allows data to be used and shared with stakeholders across the organization within the requirements of the privacy regulations, and documents compliance for regulators.

SAS for Personal Data Protection creates a unified environment with a single user interface for accessing and managing data. It allows organizations to access, identify, govern, protect, and audit personal data so that they can comply with GDPR requirements that personal data must not only be protected, but must be removed upon request. This combination of SAS software and services allows organizations to blend data types from multiple sources such as Oracle, Apache, and Hadoop, identifying personal data in structured and unstructured sources. Its data governance features enforce policies and protect data through role-based masking and encryption that secures sensitive information while at rest and in use.

Neo4j is a graph solution that provides visibility into the organization’s data and the connections between and among data. Personal data can reside in many applications at many locations across the enterprise and in the cloud, and must be protected and managed in all locations. Organizations must be able to track data through its lifecycle, from its acquisition through use to removal. To track and control the data, connections among multiple systems and data silos must be understood. The Neo4j native graph database provides this visibility, together with analytics and data integration. It is available either as a download or an online tool.
