Then find your goals...
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 987 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which GDPR improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 987 standard requirements:
If a significant amount of data will be regularly received from vendors/partners, is this data de-identified according to HIPAA privacy standards as a matter of course?
Do we measure Accuracy? One data protection risk lies in the detection rates, specifically the false positive and false negatives, i.e. how many people are mistakenly identified as fraudulent or how many fraudulent claims are not identified?
You keep a record of names; surnames and emails of individuals in a web application. Do these data come under the competence of GDPR? And do both the operator of the web application and you need to treat them that way?
If your GDPR management is conducted by an external company; who would be fined in the event of a personal data leak? Is the responsibility born by you; or can it be contractually transferred to the provider?
If you have historically considered yourself to be a processor to avoid being directly subject to data protection laws, consider revisiting that conclusion. Might you be better off as a controller?
In the event of an investigation, a business' internal discussions will be relevant, as well as these external objective factors. Does the business “envisage the offering of services to” individuals in the Union?
Privacy should not be an afterthought; a bolt-on sometime between the initial coding and delivery of a new system. It should be designed in from the start; peer-reviewed; tested and the data controller needs to be able to show that adequate security is in place; it is monitored; and that the strictest data protection policies will apply by default. If you design your own custom apps; are these the standards you work to? When deploying purchased systems; is privacy set at its tightest by default?
The GDPR provides users (data subjects) with the right to demand data controllers (the organizations holding the data) provide their data back to them; in machine readable form. Are you ready to respond to requests; to collect together all data from all sources on the individuals; and deliver it back?
Traditional data protection principles include fair and lawful data processing; data collection for specified, explicit, and legitimate purposes; accurate and kept up-to-date data; data retention for no longer than necessary. Are additional principles and requirements necessary for IoT applications?
- What will be the policies for data sharing and public access (including provisions for protection of privacy, confidentiality, security, intellectual property rights and other rights as appropriate)?
