COBIT Focus - COBIT 5 and the GDPR

With just a year left until theEuropean Union’s (EU’s) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)[i] takes effect, it istime for any organization with European customers to get started with theimplementation of its requirements. Most supervisory authorities in EUcountries have published guidelines on how to get ready. However, when it comesto information technologies involved, it would be convenient to find additionalinspiration in a well-known governance of enterprise IT (GEIT) framework. And,yes, that framework is COBIT®.

It is useful to refer to anintroductory document such as The GDPRand You,[ii] developed by the Officeof the Data Protection Commissioner (DPC) of Ireland, to help organizationsprepare for the GDPR. In order to provide clear guidance and a practicalstarting point, the DPC compiled a checklist to assist in moving toward 2018and full compliance. By applying the COBIT® 5enablers to the DPC road map, it is possible to determine the basic scope whereCOBIT can help.

RE: COBIT Focus - COBIT 5 and the GDPR

Govind, Thank you for your very kind opinion. You are absolutely right - it should be DPC in the whole text. My mistake.

RE: COBIT Focus - COBIT 5 and the GDPR

Extended article was worthwhile. Directly for those in Europe or multinational components in Europe. In directly/strategically, for firms outside of Europe to watch for trends of where we are headed. Thanks. The brief above has some added vetting needed while survivable in content. I would agree that DCP is a second acronym that needs defining. 4+ stars for the main article. 2 stars for the brief above.

RE: COBIT Focus - COBIT 5 and the GDPR

Don, as the author of the extended article (not the brief) I am glad you found my article useful for those that will have to comply with the GDPR. For firms outside Europe - you are right. The GDPR is a very serious trend that will in fact impact the whole world.

RE: COBIT Focus - COBIT 5 and the GDPR

Recently I got a client asking for GDPR compliance auditing. And this client is a construction company. Most of their business is B2B. I don't know if  GDPR will affect b2b business. 

Another thing: 

Recently I am carrying out a research for my final year dissertation in Trinity College. The primary aim of my research is to explore the factors influencing the adoption of Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) standards and frameworks.

I would like to invite you to participate in this research project. You will be requested to complete a survey through SurveyMonkey, which should not be more than 15 minutes. This survey is totally anonymised. The research information sheet and participants consent form are at the first page of the online survey. It will provide detailed information about my research and the way in which I conduct my research.

Online survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5BD9HVG

All information obtained will be treated confidentially and no name of individuals or organisations will be saved in any format throughout the process.

I can send you a copy of my final dissertation if you have interests. And it will be ready after 1st Sep 2017.

All your responses and suggestions are appreciated.  And thank you for your participating.

Many Thanks,
