Data Protection: Are Companies Ready?

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by European Union has been in the process of being adapted by various companies. Onelogin, one of the companies who plan to be ready using this framework hopes to strengthen their overall privacy and security policies. They hope that in turn, this will also protect the privacies of their clients.

The company, in the previous years have adapted privacy policies for their clients through Generally Accepted Privacy Principles (GAPP). Eventually, they went into creating the Privacy Shield Program and one of the first companies to adopt the ISO 27018.

These are some of the main areas that Onelogin plans to upgrade as they prepare themselves for possible GDPR changes:


Onelogin plans to rewrite their data privacy frameworks in a “blank page” in order to avoid overlooked policies that may cause security problems. When frameworks are too high-level, it tends to be complex and is difficult to revise.

Improving language in contracts

The company hopes to improve contact language for parties involve. This include making contract language understandable for topics such as data breach, subcontractors, and responsibility of data processors.

Addressing the need for Data Processing Officer

Onelogin is working on finding DPO for their company as a way to meet the GDPR guidelines. They want to outsource someone who has a legal background and has a broad knowledge of the security and privacy policies of the EU.

Building Trust

With a new regulation comes more changes for Onelogin as they continue to build and maintain the trust of their clients. They plan to have an independent review on May of 2018 to make sure that all of their GDPR requirements have been covered as the certification is possible over time.
