PRIVACY GAP ASSESSMENT FOR A HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTE

A higher education institute appointed Mobius Consulting to assist with a Privacy gap assessment and the implementation of prioritised activities focusing on POPIA, GDPR & other privacy requirements. The assessment was completed across several divisions, and a broad understanding of their current level of Data Privacy readiness was provided. 

Mobius assisted the institution with the following: 

  • Development of a gap assessment which included documenting of gaps and identifying practical remediation controls for privacy compliance in relation to the gaps identified;
  • Development of a roadmap based on the assessment, which included illustrating quick wins and high, medium, and low-risk items;
  • Assisted with development of prioritised documents;
  • Development of privacy training and awareness content;
  • Development and handover of the high-level overall project plan per department; and
  • Providing Privacy SME input into various Privacy related matters.

Mobius used a practical approach to identify and engage with the appropriate stakeholders. As a result, the prioritised implementation activities were successfully delivered and handed over as business as usual.
