GDPR CheckUp: Test your organisation’s GDPR progress

An online tool and brochure to help you comply with the GDPR legislation

On 25 May 2018, the new European legislation on privacy will enter into force, namely GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation. All organisations that process personal details of EU citizens must be able to prove they comply with this legislation. The GDPR CheckUp tool allows you to easily check where you stand in this framework.

Data is one of the most precious resources for both companies and organisations. This also goes for institutions active in the fields of education and research. Your organisation is undoubtedly also preparing to become GDPR-compliant by 25 May 2018. From then onwards, organisations that do not respect the legislation may be fined.

So what exactly does this new regulation entail? What should your organisation do to protect privacy data? What about data in the cloud? Online there is so much information about GDPR that organisations sometimes can’t see the wood for the trees.

E-learning tool

The Cyber Security Coalition (CSC) – which Belnet forms part of – and the Centre for Cyber Security Belgium have developed an online tool to help SMEs and smaller organisations on their way.  In just 20 minutes, the GDPR CheckUp tool gives you a clear view of your organisation’s progress towards GDPR compliance. 

It includes a short video illustrating the main terminology linked to GDPR. The e-learning module helps you identify what point you are at and correctly apply GDPR.
