Grants of up to $8,000 to USA, Canada, and International education institutions and public sector organizations for an assessment process that will help protect individual privacy rights. The assessment will include a thorough audit, an onsite visit, and a recommendation report.

Based on the alarming non-compliance instances, Campus Consortium strives to safeguard individual privacy rights through its first ever General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Assessment Grant.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new European Union (EU) privacy law that came into effect on May 25, 2018. It is designed to give individuals control over their personal data and is an important effort for protecting individual rights and freedoms. The GDPR applies to any organization based in the EU and organizations wherever they are located—that are selling goods and services in the EU or processing personal data of individuals in the EU.

Organizations that comply with GDPR regulations smoothly and readily will strengthen their relationships with customers by protecting the security and privacy of their data, and providing transparency into policies and principles. Additionally, the robust data management capabilities required to achieve compliance can enable businesses to better engage with customers, empower employees, and optimize the creation and delivery of products and services.

Benefits of choosing a GDPR Assessment:

- Security against potential cyber-attacks and data thefts

- Boosting your organization’s reputation as secure for students and staff

- Data Protection Training to ensure data controller accountability

- Global data security for individuals with third-party country transactions

- Improved accuracy of data stored in your organization’s database

- Cut costs by getting rid of data inventory software no longer relevant to your business

The grant helps fund up to $8,000 in the entire process of assessment that includes:
- An onsite visit
- Thorough audit*
- Recommendation reports for vulnerability assessments under The General Data Protection Regulation

In addition, Grant Awardees will also be eligible for Exclusive Consortium Rates to migrate their infrastructure to the cloud and be disaster ready.

*Auditor’s travel and lodging will be hosted by the institution and will not be covered in the grant award.
