iManage GDPR paper – the need for a revised information governance strategy


The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force May 2018. This law is not solely limited to organizations based in Europe, any organization that has data on EU citizens is subject to the law. 

This whitepaper discusses the potential impact to Professional Services firms, specific data governance areas they should consider and what they should do in preparation.

All firms will need to ask themselves the following:

  • Are we storing or processing ‘personal data?’
  • Are we storing or processing ‘sensitive personal data?’
  • Is this data adequately protected?
  • Do our cloud service providers comply with GDPR?

This paper summarises several key requirements of the GDPR and maps them to proposed best practice and how a well-designed and robust Information Governance strategy can greatly improve a firm’s ability to comply with the GDPR and give clients confidence that their personal data would be offered a higher level of protection than typically exists.
