Extract from Michael Donev, Esq.'s article "The Cost to Forget"
As the GDPR’s enforcement date is coming closer, companies around the world working with personal information of individuals in the EU are under pressure to bring their data protection practices to compliance levels. With respect to the rights of individuals granted by the Regulation, the forthcoming costs and the need for workforce allocation will certainly add a heavy burden to organization’s budgets and create greater risks of possible non-compliance. Although, this will depend on the size and the amount of personal information an organization processes, in the case of the Right to Erasure – or also known as the “Right to be Forgotten” – the GDPR requires that controller must erase the requested data in its entirety without undue delay.
Now imagine, if a company receives a few hundred of those requests…or a few thousand! The pragmatic implications will be unprecedented and substantial resources will have to be set aside.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
