Documentation you require to comply with GDPR


What does the accountability principle mean?

The introduction of the accountability principle in Article 5(2) requires organisations to “be responsible for, and be able to demonstrate compliance with,” the principles of the GDPR.

How can I demonstrate GDPR compliance

A GDPR risk assessment wwhich is based upon the ICO checklist is the best way to build an accurate and concise picture of your business. The JDI Risk assessment is based on the questions that you need to work through to understand any changes you need to make within your business

How to demonstrate accountability under the GDPR

  • Keep up-to-date documentation of processing activities;
  • Appoint a data protection officer (DPO) if appropriate;
  • Implement measures to meet the principles of data protection by design and by default;
  • Implement appropriate technical and organisational measures (policies and procedures) to ensure and demonstrate compliance; and
  • Conduct data protection impact assessments (DPIAs) where appropriate.

Where to start with GDPR documentation

Documentation is an integral part of your GDPR compliance project.

Compiling policies and procedures to demonstrate compliance with the GDPR can be time-consuming and challenging.
