Continuing our countdown to GDPR compliance, Sterling is pleased to introduce our GDPR champions.
Sterling’s 16 GDPR champions represent functions across our business, including representatives from our Account Management, Assignment Management, Expense Management, IT Development and Human Resources functions. These individuals are supporting our GDPR task force with the integration of new and amended processes, and will support compliance to the GDPR in the long-term.
Step 3 – Action
Kaelyn Choo, Change Manager who is leading the GDPR project says:
“GDPR champions have some involvement during implementation, for example, they are auditing the data mapping completed by the taskforce, as we do not audit our own work, however their role is long-term. It extends way beyond the 25th May go live date. They will live and breathe the requirements of the GDPR ensuring Sterling consistently meet the requirements of the regulation. They will be the point of contact for our data subjects and our own employees should they have any GDPR queries.”

Mahima Khurana, Assignment Management Consultant is one of our GDPR champions:
“Learning about the steps we need to take to move our processes on from meeting the requirements of the Data Protection Act to those of the GDPR has been an exciting challenge so far. It has been interesting to hear how the way my team and I operate on a day-to-day basis is affected by the GDPR. It has also given me the opportunity to learn a bit more about our Account Management processes as I have been auditing their data mapping.”
