GDPR represents the biggest regulatory change in how you can process and store personal data since the inception of the internet. It’s reach is global and enforcement begins on 25th May 2018. GDPR’s scope is significant, as it covers companies and organisations that utilise or store personal information of European citizens globally and natural persons in the EU or companies operating in the EU. Therefore, its remit includes most organisations anywhere in the world.
The MyGDPR app is designed to give organisations a first contextual guideline of how GDPR could affect how they currently operate.
Designed to be completed in less than two minutes, MyGDPR maps out how your organisation operates. MyGDPR provides a ten page report on areas that you need to be aware of based on your input.
MyGDPR can’t solve your GDPR compliance in such a short time frame but it is able to give you some valuable insight to commence your GDPR compliance journey.Start MyGDPR

GDPR stipulates that under certain conditions, the appointment of a Data Protection Office is mandatory, but for many organisations this will not be the case. However once the full extent of the regulation is understood it quickly becomes apparent that it could be a significant risk not to appoint one.
The difficulty can arise when some of the requirements of the position are examined in detail. Especially when the role carries with it the need to be free from any conflict of duties in performing the role, so for many organisations it becomes a difficult position to fill.
The DPO position demands a combination of skills not only from a compliance / legal perspective but also one that has a thorough understanding of technology and how best to solve potential risks.
Calligo have a dedicated GDPR team who have the skills and experience in all of these areas and combine to provide a comprehensive Data Protection Officer as a Service to ensure you can effectively monitor your ongoing compliance and efficiently deal with GDPR requests.
Organisations who are under the remit of GDPR but do not operate from within the EU are mandated to appoint a representative within the EU to handle their GDPR requests.
Calligo operate in multiple jurisdictions, including the EU and are able to operate as the appointed GDPR representative for companies outside the EU to meet their obligations under the regulation.
