The DPO is responsible for overseeing the monitoring of internal compliance, informing and advising on data protection obligations and providing advice on Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs).
The DPO also acts as a contact point for data subjects and the regulatory authority.
The DPO needs a high-level overview of all the data and processing activities that are happening within the organisation – a herculean task without the assistance of a platform like Pridatect.
With Pridatect, all the details are held in one, secure platform, providing the DPO with the information they need to fulfil their duties.
DPOs love the Pridatect platform – the management overview, risk assessment and automated reporting tools are just what they need to stay on top of the GDPR compliance process.
A key role of the DPO is reporting to management on data processing, risk assessment and mitigation and Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs) for specific projects.
The DPO is also responsible for communication with regulatory authorities like the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) in the UK when required.
The flexible and automated reporting tools in the Pridatect platform provide the perfect way to generate all the documentation that is required for the DPOs reporting activities.
Pridatect helps the DPO to keep a complete record of all the processing activities carried out by the organisation and keep track of their life cycle.
Quickly see which subjects were included in any data processing activities, what technologies were involved and which collection and processing methods were used.
When it comes to reporting – whether internally to the board or to the GDPR authorities – you will have everything you need at the press of a button.
DPOs need to know when there are international transfers of data and ensure these transfers – and the destinations – are compliant with the GDPR.
Pridatect makes it simple to keep track of and report on international data transfers.
Pridatect allows you to perform comprehensive risk assessments and proposes risk solutions in the form of technical and organisational measures (TOMs).
Out of the box, Pridatect includes over 100 TOMs, and you can easily add your own measures that may be unique to your sector or your organisation.
Processing risk assessment is visualised in a risk heat map, an easy way to communicate risk with other departments and board-level management.
A key role for the DPO is advising when there is a requirement for a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA), involvement in the preparation and presentation of the DPIA and potentially communicating with the regulator.
The Pridatect platform gives the DPO the tools to be able to compile and present the information required for the DPIA – both internally and externally.
When DPOs use Pridatect, they have a complete map of their organisations’ processing activities, and can easily see what data was processed and the origins and recipients of that data.
Having all the compliance data in one, secure platform means that the DPO can easily manage ongoing compliance activities, quickly execute periodic audits and rapidly respond to any regulatory reporting requests.
With Pridatect, the DPO can always see the big picture when managing GDPR compliance.
The extensive library of automated and customisable reports included with Pridatect makes it a most valuable tool for the DPO.
From high-level reports to the board to detailed technical reports for data processors, the internal security team, or regulatory bodies, Pridatect delivers at the push of a button.
Time-consuming information gathering, analysis and data preparation can be replaced with Pridatect’s automated and flexible reporting module.
