GDPR readiness toolkit for SMEs

The Data Protection Commissioner have just released a GDPR readiness toolkit for the SME sector. The Small Firms Association (SFA) worked closely with the Data Protection Commissioner to create this toolkit which will enable your business to conduct a GDPR audit.

The GDPR readiness toolkit is an ideal resource for SMEs to map out the personal data they currently hold, to document the lawful basis for collecting data and detail the retention periods for each category of data. Some aspects of GDPR will be more relevant to your business and the toolkit will help you determine the areas that will have the greatest impact on your business, those that are not relevant and the areas that need to be remedied in order to be GDPR complaint.

The toolkit contains a series of detailed questions that includes personal data, data subject rights, accuracy and retention, transparency requirements, other data controller obligations, data security, data breaches and international data transfers.

You can download the GDPR readiness toolkit for SME's below and there is a downloadble template version you can use for conducting your GDPR audit.
