Facilitate mapping of all personal data of an organization and to ensure better compliance with the standards contained in the General Data Protection Regulation.

 

MONTREAL 

Coginov, a leader in the field of information technology (IT) and semantic products, is pleased to announce the launch of its new solution GDPR-AUDIT, which is based on the Info-Audit platform and semantic API technology.

The European Commission’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect on May 25, 2018. The Regulation has essentially been implemented to require companies to communicate better about data collection and usage, to optimize data protection and prevent data violations. It also serves to establish better control and reactivity in case a data breach does occur.  This new regulation occurs at a time when data volumes are exploding and threats are increasing exponentially.

Although the GDPR is a European directive and affects European organizations, it will also apply to other countries that process and manage data concerning European citizens. Compliance with the new Regulation will be a significant task with regard to communicating about the use of customer data, implementing protective measures to prevent data loss and documenting the processes linked to this data.

Coginov’s GDPR-AUDIT solution is a unique service that allows users to create a full inventory of information assets to evaluate risks and ensure conformity with the GDPR by identifying sensitive personal information within an organization.

GDPR-AUDIT allows European companies to have access to an efficient and simple solution to avoid fines and to quickly ensure compliance with the GDPR.  IT systems integrators can rely on a solution that will allow them to advise their clients competently about data-related risks and to populate the register of processing operations that will facilitate information traceability.  Companies outside the European Union may comply with the GDPR simply by implementing full mapping of data risks.

With a timescale of under 12 months to comply, GDPR-AUDIT is a solution that facilitates rapid risk analysis and produces full mapping of company data by identifying areas where risks exist.  The solution is based on unique robust technologies that have been in use since 2011 for data analysis and risk assessment.

The GDPR-AUDIT solution addresses a market that impacts companies and organizations in more than 190 countries
