When did GDPR become a full-time job?

How much can you get through in a working day?

A number of back-to-back meetings, some phone calls, a couple of dozen emails along with a lunch break and various other activities thrown in, along with the usual interruptions? This may not be the case with impending GDPR regulations on the horizon.

Recent reports estimate that businesses are set to spend an average of 172 hours each month simply dealing with GDPR requests come May*. This equates to 8 hours each day. A full working day, meaning the average organisation need an employee whose role becomes solely dedicated to dealing with GDPR enquiries. Can your organisation afford to spend in excess of £40K per year purely for someone to manually deal with incoming GDPR enquiries?

By 2018, we imagined that this kind of enterprise reporting by stitching Excel spreadsheets together would be well behind us. The process is prone to manual error, time-consuming and unreliable. So why would you leave an issue as important as GDPR subject to such mistakes?

Furthermore, how will your organisation cope with 10 times the demand of GDPR requests? We can’t start working 80-hour days or employ 10x the number of GDPR staff! The key lies in a good Data Management Strategy that is automated, flexible, scalable and cost-effective to meet the changing demands of your business.

Agile Solutions GDPR Strategy will take you on a 6-step journey from the initial assessment of your business needs, to providing the support you require to deal with GDPR enquiries in May 2018 and beyond. We will give you a cost-effective route to GDPR compliance that will allow enquires to be dealt with in an efficient and trustworthy manner with not a single 80-hour working day in sight!
