Company helps customers meet new privacy regs with key role-based
content and access to data privacy legal experts

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#digitaltransformationMEGA
International
is introducing HOPEX
GDPR
, a practical toolbox developed in partnership with Gruppo
Imperiali
, to help companies meet the European General Data
Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements quickly and efficiently.

MEGA and Gruppo Imperiali created the solution to help companies
demonstrate that their compliance systems satisfy the GDPR’s new
approach to processing personal data. HOPEX GDPR will simplify how
companies can meet the requirements and guide them toward GDPR
compliance.

MEGA is the first enterprise
architecture
(EA) vendor to build a GDPR solution with specific
features for key GDPR user roles such as the data protection officer. It
is also the first to incorporate content and templates from recognized
data privacy legal experts, and permit customers to ask questions of
those experts in real time.

Gruppo Imperiali provides expert legal and technical consulting services
to multi-national companies around the globe. The firm has specialized
in data protection for more than 30 years.

The collaboration has produced a unique solution to help businesses
reach GDPR compliance. It provides Gruppo Imperiali’s specialized GDPR
legal and regulatory content and allows MEGA customers to get tailored
advice from the Group’s legal experts.

HOPEX GDPR will provide the capability to:

  • assemble detailed knowledge of people, processes and technology across
    the entire company … a GDPR must
  • access the most up-to-date legal information about GDPR
  • create a ‘single source of truth’ in a centralized repository and a
    collaborative workspace easily accessed by the entire GDPR team
  • marshal information from data and business process modeling, gap
    analysis, and risk assessments into GDPR compliance reports that
    become ongoing priority action plans

The GDPR, effective in May 2018, requires organizations to comply with
strict standards on protecting the personal information of European
residents. All companies with this information are subject to the
regulation. Those that fail to comply could face fines up to €20 million
or four percent of annual sales.

PwC’s 2017 GDPR Preparedness Pulse Survey showed that 68% of 200 CXOs
canvassed expect to invest $1-10 million in GDPR compliance.

According to a recent
Forrester report
, GDPR “creates new rights for consumers and new
obligations for companies.” Report author, Forrester Principal Analyst
Henry Peyret writes, “These additional complexities mean [organizations]
must enable a state-of-the-art privacy management practice.”

The MEGA solution is GDPR-specific and draws on the advanced mapping and
documentation capabilities of the HOPEX platform, providing a
collaborative workspace for data protection officers and other
compliance leaders across the organization. From HOPEX GDPR, they can
centrally manage various aspects of GDPR compliance, including data
inventory, business process analysis, risk assessment and compliance
reporting.

“We want to provide the capability to satisfy the new regulations, as
well as remove obstacles to business agility and manage increased risks
that may occur with these compliance requirements,” explained Lucio de
Risi, CEO, MEGA. “The legal content in our solution will help raise
awareness throughout companies about the importance of GDPR compliance
and the templates will speed the implementation of remediation plans.”
