Washington, D.C. – Any business collecting, storing, processing, or otherwise handling data containing personally identifiable information on European Union citizens needs to plan for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into effect May 25, 2018.

Open-i Advisors’ new GDPR preparation service makes it easy and affordable to assess how web hosting and cloud computing providers collect, store, and use customer data. Our data consultants are experts on mapping the way your organization uses data, finding possible risks, and determining what steps you can take to mitigate risks. You’ll be presented with a document that can be either assessed by our partner lawyers or your own legal team.


We work with you to create a report that includes:
• A summary of risk points
• A map of data flows by department
• A list of suppliers and other third parties with whom the client may share data (or who may share data with the client) with their GDPR statements included as relevant
• A list of all found public privacy or disclosure statements, ready for review

“By working with Open-i Advisors, you can save time and money by packaging up everything you will need to hand off to legal counsel so that they can address your needs in as low cost a manner as possible,” says Open-i Advisors Co-Founder Christian Dawson. “Our legal partners are experts on GDPR compliance, so if you’re looking for a holistic solution we can provide that as well”.

GDPR preparation from Open-i Advisors provides data expertise when you need it, with a data-consultant led discovery process, to analyze how data is used across your organization. Our process is straightforward and simple:

Initial Compliance Check: We speak with key people at your company to assess your data privacy risks and measure your current privacy controls against the GDPR.

Data Discovery – Internal: An extensive register of your organization’s current data processing activities will be produced, along with a comprehensive visualization of the organizational data life-cycle in its entirety.

Data Discovery – External: Open-i Advisors will do a public search of statements made by your organization, including privacy policy, email submission forms, white paper submission forms, client sign-up forms, etc.

Final Compliance Check: Open-i Advisors will highlight areas of anticipated concern to consider business process changes where necessary, and to discuss with legal counsel.

This GDPR preparation service is offered for a reasonable hourly fee, which will result in a low cost for your company to gain all the insights you need to identify internal changes needed by your organization.
