GDPR in Life Sciences & Healthcare — are you ready?

The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has a major impact on companies in the medical device, medicine and healthcare industries, as personal health data is extremely confidential. But GDPR also presents an opportunity for companies in the industry to foster the trust of patients, consumers and healthcare professionals. Data privacy is more than just compliance.

General Data Protection Regulation – where does your company stand?

Compliance with GDPR requirements doesn’t have to be complex or difficult. No matter where you stand, with ARCONDIS, you have the right companion at your side. With nearly two decades of compliance experience in the life sciences, we will find the right approach for your situation – no matter whether SME or corporation — and are more than willing to pitch in.


Requirements in GDPR compliance

There are a number of factors crucial for GDPR compliance that your company has to be able to prove end-to-end:

  • Confidential, personal data has been identified
  • Overview of data storage location and flows are available
  • Access is under control – who has access, how and why?
  • Technical and organizational security measures are defined and implemented
  • Rights of the data subject – right to information, transferability and deletion are ensured
  • Responsiveness in case of data privacy violations is ensured
