RGPD - 25 mai 2018

From May 2018, all companies must comply with the new General Data Protection Regulation. The GDPR aims to extend the rights of individuals and make companies more accountable as well as their subcontractors who are handling the data. The GDPR therefore requires customer-centric brands to imagine unique customer experiences that respect their personal data while also giving them the opportunity to review their marketing, CRM and commercial strategies in order to build trust with consumers, obtain their consent and get them actively involved in a long-term relationship.

But, in practical terms and as a marketer, how should this new situation be integrated without affecting the performance of the marketing and digital strategies? What will the direct impact be on your activities? How can customer intelligence continue to be enhanced in compliance with the GDPR? How can the issues surrounding data security be resolved from the moment the data is collected and throughout its operational use? What roadmap should be put in place in the coming months in order to be in compliant on time?

Backed by the excellent reputation it has built up in this domain over the past 14 years, Waisso provides the support you need to implement the GDPR over the short, medium and long term.

Here is a reminder of the required steps as listed by the CNIL for the preparation of these new obligations:

Any company, however big, that collects data considered personal (last name, first name, address, phone number, emails, IP address, gender, etc.) and collects, stores, organises, modifies it, etc., will be subject to the new General Data Protection Regulation.

  • appointing its Data Protection Officer (DPO) who is accountable for protecting the data
  • making sure that the consent of the people concerned has been obtained
  • conducting a precise audit, recorded in a register, of the processing of the current personal data, with an impact analysis on data protection
  • prioritising the actions to be taken to secure the data
  • developing and organising the internal processes that will ensure a high level of protection of the personal data over the long term
  • having explicit detailed documentary evidence of the upgrading steps taken to comply with the regulation
