The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has 99 Articles and one clear intent: to protect the personal data of EU/EEA citizens.
The GDPR applies to personal data that is processed manually, electronically and by third parties. You can’t effectively meet GDPR obligations if you haven’t assessed your internal and external information practices. The most egregious GDPR violations will hit organizations that have over-retained personal data.
The GDPR requirements are too important to rely on inefficient, incomplete and error-prone processes. Companies must be able to demonstrate reasonable and effective levels of diligence in identifying risks, resolving them and continuous improvement.

The Three Most Essential Steps for GDPR Compliance
The GDPR requires companies to develop and maintain comprehensive data inventories to identify where personal data exists, its processing activities, transfers, storage locations, access levels, retention periods and other elements.

The GDPR requires that companies ensure that all third-party processors (and their sub-processors) have sufficient safeguards in place to protect personal data. Comprehensive vendor risk assessments are no longer optional.
