The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) highlights the active role played by the principles of ‘privacy by design’ and ‘privacy by default’ in ensuring that organisations protect the rights of data subjects. Privacy by design puts data protection at the forefront of any project, but with another report claiming that many UK organisations haven’t started to prepare for the GDPR, many people clearly aren’t getting the message.
If you want to learn more about privacy by design, you should register for our upcoming webinar: Data protection by design and by default under the GDPR. It will take place on 6 July 2017, from 3:00 pm (BST), and will cover:
- The implications of data protection by design and by default
- The foundational principles of ‘privacy by design’
- The role of data protection impact assessments in designing efficient and effective processes
- The benefits of taking a ‘privacy by design’ and ‘privacy by default’ approach
That final point is crucial. The GDPR’s requirements aren’t designed only to impose stricter rules on organisations; they will often help those organisations become more efficient. As the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) writes, an organisation that adopts a privacy by design approach will be able to identify potential problems at an early stage, address problems of privacy with less effort and cost, and increase its awareness of privacy and data protection.
