GDPR Data Checklist and Information
GDPR Data Checklist
Below is a GDPR data checklist followed by links to other sites and articles about GDPR data. We’ve tried to take the jargon out of GDPR data requirements and added notes to make things clearer.
|GDPR Information Audit
|You should document what personal data you hold, where you hold it, where it came from and who you share it with.
|GDPR Communicate Privacy Information
|You should review your current privacy notices and put a plan in place for making any necessary changes in time for GDPR implementation.
|GDPR Individual Rights
|You should check your procedures to ensure they cover all the rights individuals have, including how you would delete personal data or provide data electronically and in a commonly used format.
|GDPR Subject Access Requests
|You should update your procedures and plan how you will handle requests within the new timescales and provide any additional information.
|GDPR Lawful Basis For Processing Personal Data
|You should identify the lawful basis for your processing activity in the GDPR, document it and update your privacy notice to explain it.
|You should review how you seek, record and manage consent and whether you need to make any changes. Refresh existing consents now if they don’t meet the GDPR standard.
|GDPR Data Breaches
|You should make sure you have the right procedures in place to detect, report and investigate a personal data breach.
|GDPR Data Protection Officer (DPO)
|Although not usually necessary for smaller business, it is still recommended that you should designate someone to take responsibility for data protection compliance and requests.
|If your organisation operates in more than one EU member state (ie you carry out cross-border processing), you should determine your lead data protection supervisory authority. Article 29 Working Party Guidelines will help.
