GDPR Risk Assessment

In May 2018 the EU General Data Protection Regulation comes into effect and brings with it numerous innovations. It demands companies to implement an information security management system (ISMS) with integrated data protection, as well as to document that they have taken appropriate technical and organisational measures regarding security and data protection. Violation of data protection rules will result in fines of four percent of their total revenue.

How the GDPR Risk Assessment will help you

The assessment is the first step to quickly get insight in compliance of your policy regarding the GDPR requirements, by combining the power of Snow Software and the IT-security expertise of Softline Solutions - thus combining SAM with Security.

Snow Software offers out-of-the-box reports to assist with common GDPR use cases while powerful datasets enable you to export and manipulate data for any purpose. Softline Solutions assists in the deployment of the solution and advises on mitigating actions on the risks found. This report is the first, and one of the most important steps towards a full GDPR compliance.

Identifying GDPR risk areas

Know who uses what


It is not good enough to just do software inventory. Knowing who has access to key software applications and data and who actually uses them will enable the tracing of users in the event of a security breach. A large proportion of security breaches are internal. Deploying Snow’s GDPR solution will help identify who is responsible for a data breach and in some cases, enable preventative measures.
Know what devices are deployed and their location

Having discovery agents on 80% of an estate means 20% are potentially the greatest risk. An agentless scan can be a fast and effective way to fill the gaps in asset knowledge of devices and what software is installed. Where high risk is found, an agent can be installed to understand usage.
Remain up to date with dynamic application intelligence

Snow's Data Intelligence Service  automatically updates with the GDPR-relevant information, providing continuous protection. 


Mitigating actions

The risks identified with the help of the Snow Software technology, Softline Solutions can define mitigating actions based on best-practices in the industry.
