The General Data Protection Regulation is an “all-encompassing” regulation that will touch nearly every part of your business. It is, for this reason, that we feel you should find ways to gain value from your compliance activities beyond compliance. You will quickly notice that documenting your GDPR compliance will require a similar overview you would need for nearly any change management project. We have tailored our approach with this in mind.
There are 9 workspace templates to help you get started with documentation. Here you can see how all of the workspaces are designed to connect to each other. The Ardoq templates are designed from an accumulation of experience from a variety of projects. The majority of our users choose to pick and choose parts of this approach to create a tailored approach to meet their individual needs. We recommend using our templates as a starting point and inspiration, not a one-size-fits-all approach.
The workspaces come with predefined components, references, and field types included, but you can simply use these templates for inspiration and customize your workspaces to match your organization’s structure. The important thing is that you identify personal data used in your processes and in your systems and document who has access to it, where it is stored, and the justification for having it.
