Data Protection Policy
Is it needed, and what should it cover?
Organisations are considered “data controllers” in legal terms, which makes them responsible for how their data is collected, processed, stored, protected, maintained, analysed and shared.
Although it’s not an explicit GDPR requirement to have a written policy per say, having one could prove favorable if you get audited by the national data protection authorities.
The policy should for example be:
Written in an easy and understandable language
Created to fit your organisation, industry and country
Designed in a way that’s possible for everyone to follow
Roles, Responsibilities, and Security Practices
Educate and guides everyone on how to protect your organisational data with our template.
It outlines the reader about:
The responsibilities of each stakeholder
How sensitive data should be processed over email, the cloud, social media, and other communication apps.
Encryption, multi-factor-authentication (MFA), password security, data breaches, and much more.
