What challenges must be overcome regarding privacy compliance?

For a company to be considered «privacy compliant», many precautions must be taken behind the scenes. Here are just a few examples:

  • Contracts with suppliers, service providers or other third parties must be adapted whenever is personal data is exchanged.
  • There must be a clear documentation of what personal data is being processed, why it's being processed, where it is stored, what processing your company is doing as well as to whom this personal data is being transferred.
  • It is essential to ensure that the processing of personal data is limited to the minimum necessary for the intended purpose.
  • Should the deletion of personal data be requested, proof may be requested that this has been done.
  • In case of a breach of data security, you must inform the authorities and anyone whose personal data may have been lost, about this breach.

These privacy requirements can require you to modify your existing work processes to make them compliant with the new legislation. In addition, new processes will have to be implemented or envisioned that implement procedures specified in the new data protection law.
