Snow GDPR Risk Assessment

Understand and Mitigate GDPR Risk with Complete Asset Visibility

The GDPR Challenge

Violations of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) due to go into effect in May 2018 may incur fines of up to 4% of annual turnover or €20M, whichever is greater. Gartner estimates that 50% of organizations will be ready for this legislation.1

What is Needed to be Ready for GDPR?

A critical readiness component is a complete understanding of device and application use across on-premises, cloud and mobile. Before being able to fix a problem, you have to have full visibility into its extent. Organizations must ensure they know: 

  • How many devices are in use across the enterprise  
  • Where are these devices and who has access to them
  • What applications are installed on each device and do these applications contain personal data

Asset Visibility – The Starting Point for GDPR Compliance

Snow GDPR Risk Assessment provides complete visibility of all devices, users and applications across on-premises, cloud and mobile, augmented with GDPR-specific risk assessment to build an effective GDPR plan and response. Automated discovery provides a detailed accounting of which users have access to which applications and cloud services and how they are used.

Seven Steps to Kickstart Your GDPR Compliance


Highlight GDPR risk and discover gaps in protection
Discover all devices, applications and the users across the estate and flag devices which are insufficiently protected due to poor encryption or no anti-virus software
Determine which applications are being used, by whom and on which device/virtual machine
Highlight which applications represent a personal data loss risk
Track cloud applications and classify their risk
Continuously monitor and alert on changes in the environment which represent a new risk
Take control on day one
Provides a full and accurate view of the applications across the landscape, where they reside, and a view into how much GDPR risk they represent
Assesses all devices across the enterprise, the users who have access to them and how they are used
Out-of-the-box reports assist you with common use cases whilst powerful datasets enable you to export and manipulate data for any purpose
Powerful features
Highlight GDPR risk areas. Out-of-the-box reports cover common use cases, plus powerful data export functionality enables customisable reporting for answering questions to scenarios specific to each organization
Know what devices are deployed and their location. Having discovery agents on 80% of an estate means 20% are potentially the greatest risk. An agentless scan can be a fast and effective way to fill the gaps in asset knowledge of devices and software
Know who uses what. It is not good enough to know just software inventory. Knowing who has access to key software applications and data and who actually uses key applications will enable the tracing of users in the event of a security breach.
A large proportion of security breaches are internal, either deliberate or through negligence. Deploying Snow’s GDPR solution will help identify who is responsible for a data breach and in some cases, enable preventative measures.
Remain up to date with dynamic application intelligence. Snow’s Data Intelligence Service provides continuous updates and improvements on GDPR-relevant information.
