Thoughts. Insights. Perceptions

Risk not size is the frame of reference for data protection.

“Big companies may have uncomplicated data processing activities, small companies can have extremely complex data process maps, especially “virtual” companies.  We measure the data protection compliance input based on the risk presented by data processing activities not the size of the organisation.”

Compliance with the data protection principles is the current risk.

“Although the ICO is committed to introducing GDPR provisions gently initially, that will not extend to compliance with the principles that have been law for decades. Failure to comply with the principles could also now attract large fines under GDPR.”

The answer is never
“no”.

“With data protection it is often not that you can’t do something, but more that you have to do it in a certain way.”
