GDPR Accountability

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which took effect from 25th May 2018, places new obligations on organisations, including 'accountability'. In order to comply you must be able to demonstrate that you are processing personal data in compliance with the principles of the GDPR. To demonstrate accountability, organisations must have appropriate technical and organisational measures in place to comply with the principle of privacy by design and default. It is vital to raise awareness and take various measures such as data processing audits, policies and procedures and staff training to protect your organisation from the risks of breaches and non-compliance.

What are the 7 principles of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?
There are seven main principles at the centre of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which form the guiding principles of the GDPR and form the basis for compliant processing of personal data. The seven principles are lawfulness, fairness and transparency, purpose limitation, data minimisations, accuracy, storage limitation, integrity and confidentiality, and accountability.
What is the accountability principle under the GDPR?
According to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the accountability principle requires businesses to take responsibility for how they use personal data and how they are complying with the other principles. Under the accountability principle, organisations must have appropriate measures and records in place to be able to demonstrate their compliance.
Can an individual be held accountable under GDPR?
According to the GDPR, any controller involved in processing of personal data can be held liable for the damage caused by non-compliance. This means that the data controller is liable when damages occur because of unlawful processing of personal data. The liability only ceases to be relevant if the controller can prove that they weren’t responsible for a data breach. Previously, data controllers were the only held partly responsible for enforcing data protection regulations and liability was only observed if they failed to enforce regulations.
