When it comes to compliance programs, policies and procedures, we at Fondia encourage our customers to follow the same process that we follow ourselves:
Step 1. Do a very good, thorough risk assessment first.
Step 2. Once you understand your risks and gaps, you must determine what it is that you need to do in order to mitigate the risks.
Step 3. Once you know what you have to mitigate, then you can develop a method to do that. At Fondia we have leveraged technology and organizational structure to make sure that the processes are effective and easy to use. We have automated as much of the process as we can, while consolidating the necessary people input to a smaller group of experts to ensure efficiency, accuracy and effectiveness.
Step 4. Continuously test and improve your compliance program. In all areas we at Fondia are constantly looking for solutions on how we can leverage new tech tools to ensure that we get great results with as much efficiency as possible.
Step 5. Communication, training and… MORE communication. If your goal is improved personal data protection, then the conversation should always be about personal data protection. It is not enough to have a training or two, personal data protection needs to be on people's minds all the time. When addressing compliance process and procedures, be creative – use tech tools and legal design solutions!
