As the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) celebrates its first anniversary, FERMA together with the European internal auditors association (ECIIA) have decided to team up to assess how the GDPR has affected both our professions one year after its enforcement on 25 May 2018 (see the FERMA and ECIIA joint letter FERMA ECIIA – GDPR letter survey).
The project consists of a short survey of 10 questions and a series of interviews of risk managers and internal auditors. The results will be used to :
- evaluate the role of the risk management function and internal audit regarding the GDPR and personal data related risks;
- provide unique insight on the GDPR implementation within companies.
The SIRM and its members are invited to contribute to this initiative by completing latest by June 28th the survey available on https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GDPRImplementation.
The answers will remain anonymous and the full report shall be released in the autumn. If the volume of responses allows it, an individual analysis per territory will be carried out.
Thank you for your support : it is a unique opportunity to contribute to the evolution of the European legislation in terms of data protection !
