Privacy & Data Protection
Privacy & Data Protection - Case example
About the client
The client is a global, over two billion euro chemical manufacturing company. The company operates in almost 40 countries across the globe.
In the spring of 2016, a team of Deloitte’s privacy experts conducted a Data Privacy Assessment. The objective of the project was to
a) evaluate whether, and to what extent, the organization’s current personal data processing practices meet the obligations set forth in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) adopted by the European Union; and
b) to identify actions required to support compliance with the regulation.
During the project, Deloitte assessed the existing measures and practices in close collaboration with key stakeholders, such as HR, IT and Legal. As a result, Deloitte provided the client with an assessment report identifying areas of improvement. Based on the findings of the assessment, Deloitte also suggested an action plan (roadmap), which outlined the activities required to ensure compliance with the forthcoming regulation. The plan provided the client with a sound basis for further decision making, and laid out a foundation for an organization-wide privacy program.
