It’s not the first time that we talk about GDPR on this blog. For those who missed the previous articles, we briefly mention the resources that can help Privacy Officers and IT consultants working in the Privacy field to guide their companies in this delicate transition:
- The free Security of Personal Data Processing Handbook by ENISA.
- The free Privacy and Data Protection for Mobile Devices Handbook, also by ENISA
- The “La Protezione dei Dati è un diritto di Libertà” video released by the Italian Privacy Authority.
- Our very own How to Deal with GDPR – Plan, Do, Check, Act guide, featuring a useful summary of the main IT and administrative aspects of the 2016/679 EU regulation and a checklist of things to do to adapt.
- A comprehensive list of free GDPR Webinars, Courses, Manuals and Online Resources, which summarizes the main training tools accessible for free on the subject.
To enrich this content today comes the excellent IT handbook for GDPR compliance, a real operating manual created by ManageEngine (the company that developed the AD Audit Plus and AD Manager Plus software suites) to help IT specialists – systems engineers, developers and managers – to check that they have done all the necessary activities to adapt their IT infrastructure to the requirements of the new legislation.
