Data Protection Made Easy - Accountability

There are seven basic data protection principles under EU data protection law. The principles lie at the heart of the law and, although they don’t give hard and fast rules, they embody the spirit of the regulatory framework. Therefore, compliance with the principles is a fundamental building block to any good data protection practice. The seven principles are:

  • Lawfulness, fairness and transparency
  • Purpose limitation
  • Data minimization
  • Accuracy
  • Storage limitation
  • Integrity and confidentiality (security)
  • Accountability

The seventh principle is the principle of “accountability”. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) integrates accountability as a principle which requires that organisations put in place appropriate technical and organisational measures and be able to demonstrate what they did and its effectiveness when requested.

This Friday we will be running a Lunchtime Takeaway Session with our top consultants and discussing accountability!
