Risk Assessment and Compliance Audits

GDPR Assessment Solutions from OculusIT

The General Data Protection Regulation came to power on May 25, 2018. Designed to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy, the EU GDPR controls how organizations handle personal information about their users.

How does GDPR impact your campus?

The breach of GDPR regulation can be fined up to 4% of the annual global turnover or 20€ million, whichever is greater. The government has a tiered approach to fines e.g. an organization can be fined 2% for not having their records in order (article 28), not notifying the supervising authority and data subject about a breach or not conducting impact assessment.

Why do you need a Data Protection Officer under the GDPR?

You would need to appoint a DPO under the following cases:

  • The processing (of personal data) is done by public authorities or a public body, with an exception for courts and independent judicial authorities.
  • The processing is done by processors who regularly and systematically observe ‘data subjects’ (EU residents) on a large scale.
  • The processing involves specific ‘special’ data categories (which are defined in the GDPR), again on a large scale, as processing these special types of personal data is part of your institution.

GLBA Assessment Solutions from OculusIT

About GLBA

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) requires financial institutions to explain their information-sharing practices to their customers and to safeguard sensitive data. Even after years of its implementation, most educational institutions remain unaware of the guidelines laid down by the Act. Ensuring compliance with the Act requires an in-depth administrative evaluation of procedures, networks, and applications. OculusIT GLBA Assessment services help your organization achieve complete control of your IT environment and help you safeguard data.

Key Benefits from OculusIT

  • Third-party objective assessment and a comprehensive report of the state of GLBA compliance at your campus.
  • Identification of non-compliant areas and understanding of what actions are needed to comply with GLBA Safeguards and Privacy Rules.
  • Uncover opportunities to minimize operational, fraud, reputation compliance, and technology risks.
  • Reduction of the cost, confusion, and complexity of GLBA compliance.

Data Privacy Impact Assessments

What is a DPIA?

A Data Privacy Impact Assessment (DPIA) is an analytical process under the GDPR that helps identify and minimize data protection risks. This assessment is mandatory for organizations with technologies and processes that present a high risk to the rights and freedoms of the data subjects.

How does it impact your campus?

An effective DPIA brings broader compliance, financial, and reputational benefits; helps you demonstrate accountability; and builds trust and engagement with individuals. OculusIT conducts DPIA for any type of processing which is “likely to result in a high risk” to individuals’ interests.

Our approach towards conducting DPIAs

  • Identify the need for a DPIA.
  • Describe how the information is collected and utilized.
  • Identify the privacy related vulnerabilities, risks, and threats.
  • Evaluate the privacy solutions by reducing the impact of those risks.
  • Record the DPIA outcomes in a report for submission to the regulatory authority.
  • Integrate those outcomes in your future project plans.

HIPAA Assessment

What is HIPAA?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is United States legislation of 1996 that provides data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding medical information.

How does it impact your campus?

With increase in cyberattacks and ransomware attacks on the healthcare industry, all companies that store/ transmit PHI must comply with the Act. If your healthcare organization doesn’t have an ongoing updated HIPAA compliance program, policies, procedure and documentation in place, you must get started immediately.

Our approach towards conducting a HIPAA assessment

Compliance experts from OculusIT generate comprehensive reports to understand the violations, correct them and prevent future risks.
