With the forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) a little over a year away, far too many organisations have yet to start thinking about or preparing for this more demanding data protection framework which replaces the UK Data Protection Act. At the heart of GDPR is Article 35, which requires "Privacy by Design" for data processing activities. The most widely accepted method of demonstrating compliance is to conduct a "Privacy Impact Assessment" (also known as a Data Protection Impact Assessment within GDPR) - and that's where UtopiaR can make a real difference.


Customers are taken on a progressive assessment of each data processing activity, helping them to evaluate the protection provided to valuable citizen personal data, and providing a clear and structured report that is suitable for sharing with data subjects and stakeholders. UtopiaR goes further: it undertakes a detailed analysis of the responses to highlight other potential areas of weakness in their GDPR preparations, allowing them to quickly and efficiently target their remedial work.

Abeed Janmohamed, Commercial Director of InfoSaaS, said: "In an increasingly digital world, citizens are increasingly concerned with who has access to their personal data and for what purposes. More than ever before, they want to know where their data is and who can access it, and GDPR will provide them with greater transparency as well as a wider selection of data subject rights which they may choose to exercise".

Andrew Beverley, CTO of InfoSaaS commented: "We designed UtopiaR to provide a capable Data Protection Impact Assessment framework for businesses, and help them prepare for GDPR's arrival in May 2018. Following extensive pre-launch testing within several large, complex organisations, we're satisfied that the visibility of data processing information to data subjects will make a significant contribution to gaining their trust and building better relationships. With GDPR backed by financial penalties of up to €20m for non-compliance, UtopiaR is an effective solution which already has significant pre-launch interest".
