Definition of a data breach
A data breach is a security incident involving unauthorised access to sensitive, protected or confidential data, either intentionally or unintentionally.
Report it or not? Don't follow Google's example
After suffering a data breach, Google was forced to shut down Google+. The firm only announced the breach several months after it happened.
Simplify data mapping
Know where your data is going inside
Data mapping is an essential preparation for data regulation compliance.
PrivIQ’s data mapping tool enables small and medium-sized organisations to see how data flows through their systems. It documents the relationships between data controllers and data processors so you can provide current records of your data processing activities, as required by Article 30 of the GDPR.
- Generate an audit of your data processing activities
- Understand and manage your data protection risks
- Respond to data subject access rights and requests
What is Data Mapping?
Data mapping is the process of finding and classifying data so that it can be managed and protected, especially in relation to data protection laws.
Update your processes
Mapping you data flow is crucial, but when a new vendor or provider is coming into play, you have to add it to the data mapping process.
Data protection impact assessments
Achieve data protection by design
Organisations need to assess any personal data processing that might result in high risk to individuals. Even if you don’t need to undergo a full DPIA, you have to document the screening questionnaire that leads you to that conclusion. Our approach ensures you record your processing details and document the risks and mitigation activities you’ve put in place.
- Pre-defined screening and purpose questionnaires
- Wizard to justify processing and document protection of individual’s rights
- Workflows to receive feedback from stakeholders and manage the approval process
- Automation rules to analyse risks and record mitigation records
- Easily run reports for stakeholders and regulators
What is a DPIA?
A data protection impact assessment is a process to systematically identify and reduce the risks related to personal data processing. The DPIA documentation is a blueprint that can be used by the organisation to implement data protection by design on those processing activities.
Article 35 of the GDPR
Article 35 of the GDPR requires that you undertake a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) for all high risk processing. A DPIA is a means of documenting the measures you’ve put in place to achieve compliance. You should have completed the DPIA prior to undertaking the processing.
Simplify subject access requests(SAR)
Easy to use templates and procedures
Our SAR tool alerts you when a new subject access request comes in, and reminds you to respond so you don’t miss the regulated response deadline.
We provide you with:
- A pre-built brandable form you can link to from any website or application
- Real-time alerts and reminders
- A case management system that records and stores your SAR responses in one location
- The option to add written and verbal requests manually
- Multilingual forms
- Workflows to ensure you validate and respond before deadlines
What is a Subject Access Request?
A subject access request is a request made by a data subject for the information that your organisation holds about them. Data subjects have the right to receive this information without charge and within 30 days.
Article 15 of the GDPR
Article 15 of the GDPR states that data subjects have the right to find out how controllers are using their personal information. Data subjects also have to right to ask controllers to stop using their information or erase it altogether.
