ATLANTA, Nov. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- OneTrust, the leading privacy management software designed to help organizations comply with global data privacy regulations and Privacy by Design, together with IAPP, the world's largest association of privacy professionals, announce the launch of the EU Data Transfer Kit, free for IAPP members.
The IAPP and OneTrust have partnered to provide a complimentary online platform to help organizations assess their readiness to meet the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Privacy Shield, and Binding Corporate Rules for Processors and Controllers (BCR).
"With the invalidation of the Safe Harbor framework, replaced by the new Privacy Shield, and the looming GDPR, our members, and organizations around the world, face a challenging environment for transferring personal data out of the EU," said IAPP President and CEO J. Trevor Hughes, CIPP. "They need tools like the new IAPP-OneTrust EU Data Transfer Kit to help them identify gaps and create organizational awareness. Built with insight from our members, this new tool is a great example of the IAPP community working together to help each other meet whatever privacy and data protection challenges are presented by an ever-changing regulatory environment."
The EU Data Transfer Kit helps the privacy office prepare for GDPR, Privacy Shield, and BCR in three steps:
- Complete a readiness questionnaire for each selected EU policy
- Automatically generate a gap analysis and recommended plan of action
- Run reports and track progress towards policy readiness
"Strong protections for the transfer of personal data globally is a foundational element of protecting the privacy of individuals. It is critical that organizations thoroughly evaluate their privacy programs against data transfer requirements," said Dr. Alexander Dix, OneTrust Board Advisor, and current Vice-Chair of the European Academy for Freedom of Information and Data Protection in Berlin. "The new technology-based solution provided by the IAPP and OneTrust provides an innovative and efficient approach to helping organizations evaluate their readiness to meet the obligations of GDPR, Privacy Shield, and BCRs."
The EU Data Transfer Kit is OneTrust's second complimentary product launched in partnership with the IAPP. In September, the IAPP and OneTrust launched a Comprehensive PIA platform.
"Over 400 IAPP members have registered for the IAPP and OneTrust complimentary PIA Platform since the general availability less than two months ago," said OneTrust CEO Kabir Barday, CIPM, CIPP/US, CIPT. "The success of the PIA platform has made it clear there is tremendous demand for technology-based solutions that help privacy professionals automate and operationalize their compliance efforts. OneTrust is committed to offering the most comprehensive offerings to IAPP members, and today's launch of the EU Transfer Kit, is a proofpoint of OneTrust delivering on this commitment."
