Barratt Developments Selects SureClouds GDPR Solutions

The UK’s biggest housebuilder, Barratt Developments plc has deployed the SureCloud GDPR Suite to enable the business to work towards GDPR compliance effectively, after the EU regulation came into force on the 25th of May 2018.

Barratt selected the SureCloud GDPR Suite, which is delivered from SureCloud’s cloud-based enterprise GRC platform, after the solution demonstrated its ability to provide full visibility for management and automation of GDPR processes across the organization. The platform replaces the developer’s highly manual processes that required multiple systems, and enables simple real-time risk, incident and compliance management from a single dashboard.

Gareth Braithwaite, Group IT Director at Barratt Developments, commented: “Ahead of enforcement in May 2018 it was clear that our manual efforts to achieve GDPR compliance were not only resource-intensive, but also susceptible to spreadsheet error. The SureCloud GDPR suite provides a simple, efficient system for all necessary steps and processes towards GDPR compliance. This allows us the single point of control that we require to enable efficient and effective management of our GDPR obligations.” 

“Previously we used several systems in addition to spreadsheets, with duplicate information across all of them. We wanted to collate this into a single platform for greater efficiency, which we’ve now been able to achieve with SureCloud,” added Gareth, “We have been impressed by the flexibility and performance of the platform, and the ability to document our data map across many areas of the business.”

After successful deployment of SureCloud’s GDPR Suite, Barratt Developments have also deployed three additional integrated SureCloud applications, to simplify its compliance obligations:  the Information Security Management System (ISMS) Suite; Third-Party Risk Management; and Audit Management.

The additional applications can be accessed from the SureCloud platform, which will further simplify Barratt Developments’ procedures, and improve its overall compliance posture.  The ISMS Suite will enable Barratt to strengthen their security policies and procedures, while Third-Party Risk Management will assess data security risks across Barratt’s key third party data partners. Furthermore, Audit Management will enable Barratt to plan, manage and track their audit requirements and obligations. Together, the applications will provide in-depth insights and enable centralized administration of otherwise complex, highly manual processes from one single access point. 

Alex Hollis, GRC Practice Director at SureCloud, commented: “We are delighted to be working with Barratt, not only to help them meet their GDPR obligations but also to streamline their other risk and compliance processes.”
