GDPR is not a one off project, companies need to ensure up-to-date knowledge of the ever evolving regulation and, as new regulations come into play (such as the Network Information Security Directive), that customer and employee data is kept up-to-date, accurate and easily retrievable. New research suggests that Data Subject Requests (the process component of GDPR) can consume up to 40 hours per request. This is a significant administrative burden, particularly as many simply do not know the volumes of requests to expect.
Symphony, working with a network of compliance, security and technology partners, offers an end-to-end approach to meeting Day 1 regulatory requirements (data maps, templates, policies etc).
Additionally, through the use of intelligent automation tools, Symphony enables companies to meet Day 2 (and beyond) execution requirements such as responding to Data Subject Requests.
The combination of our partners and Symphony offers a very compelling way to manage continual compliance, with high accuracy, speed and visibility, and without the need to significantly increase headcount.
The core pillars our end-to-end approach covers includes:
Through our eco-system of partners, Symphony provide unique products and services that are essential for IT and information security teams to achieve strategic goals, protect and secure personal and sensitive data, and meet the GDPR’s requirements.
The combination of Symphony and our network of partners offers an unparalleled depth of understanding of the GDPR requirements, how they should be met and how to continue meeting the ever evolving requirements post-implementation.
Leveraging a dedicated team to ensure successful compliance, we offer:
"Symphony have adopted a very unique and forward looking approach to enabling continual compliance through the use of Enterprise RPA. We are very aligned with our thinking and excited about the potential for automation in the regulatory space"

" We're delighted to partner with Symphony Ventures and have the opportunity to support global enterprises in achieving and maintaining compliance with the GDPR. The imminent compliance deadline, fines incurred for data breaches and continuously evolving cyber threats mean organisations can no longer risk delaying compliance. Organisations should focus not only on implementing appropriate technical controls and security measures but also on delivering organisation-wide staff awareness to minimise the risk of a data breach resulting from human error and make data processors aware of the threats and risks. "
