Technical safeguards for processing of personal data
The webinar's topics cover issues in response to questions from controllers and data protection officers addressed to the DPA on this topic.
Pursuant to provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), one of the primary obligations of the controller is to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the processing is performed in accordance with GDPR.
Controllers also need to review, when necessary, effectiveness of safeguards already in place, because using an untested solution, firstly, can displace its value, secondly it can give a false sense of security and can result in overlooking (not detecting) a critical vulnerability that, if exploited, could cause very negative consequences. In particular, it can lead to a personal data breach.
It is therefore important that the application of security measures be an ongoing process rather than a one-time implementation. Such approach makes it possible to identify new vulnerabilities in the systems in use, i.e. weaknesses or gaps in security that were not known when the solutions in question were implemented. Exploitation of such vulnerabilities by so-called cyber criminals can disrupt the functioning of e.g., a given system, or lead to incidents or personal data breaches.
The webinar on the topic of technical safeguards for personal data processing will be a continuation of last year's meeting, during which the topic of "Notification of personal data breaches in practice" was raised.
