The ICO recently published an article about Accountability, a key part of your GDPR implementation. Accountability is one of the core data protection principles as it makes sure that you are able to demonstrate your compliance with the GDPR. When investigating a complaint, the ICO are fair and reasonable and are usually willing to accept where companies have made reasonable attempts to meet GDPR requirements.

However, it is up to you to make sure you have all the evidence you need to prove that you have completed your GDPR and have taken your responsibilities seriously. For example, you should have:

  1. Completed your GDPR policies and procedures

  2. completed a DPIA and Legitimate Interest Assessment if you need to

  3. Trained all staff and have records of training

  4. Reviewed contracts and have compliant contracts in place

  5. Reviewed your documents and completed sort-checks / audits

  6. Registered with the ICO if you need to

  7. Created appropriate management support practises

  8. Put in place an EU Representative and appropriate controls for international data transfers.

Here at we want to keep you safe. We have a range of tools in place to help you demonstrate compliance and ongoing due-diligence.

Good luck all.
