In the words of the ICO:

  • The GDPR requires you to put in place appropriate technical and organisational measures to implement the data protection principles and safeguard individual rights. This is ‘data protection by design and by default’.
  • In essence, this means you have to integrate or ‘bake in’ data protection into your processing activities and business practices, from the design stage right through the lifecycle.
  • This concept is not new. Previously known as ‘privacy by design’, it has have always been part of data protection law. The key change with the GDPR is that it is now a legal requirement.
  • Data protection by design is about considering data protection and privacy issues upfront in everything you do. It can help you ensure that you comply with the GDPR’s fundamental principles and requirements, and forms part of the focus on accountability.

If you still must use the data and you just cannot drop or encrypt it then you have to take in depth
approach as follows Under the GDPR, breach notification will get mandatory in all member
states where a data breach is very likely to lead to a risk for those rights and freedoms of
individuals. Everybody who handles the data have to be named. Personal data cannot be
transferred to countries beyond the European Union unless they guarantee the exact same
amount of information protection. Anonymised data is accomplished by removing information that
may determine an individual.
Data security is undoubtedly one of the greatest priority problems on the current agenda of
several organisations and governments. Privacy by Design usually means that organisations will
need to think about privacy from the very first design stages and throughout the comprehensive
development process of any new goods, processes or services that involve processing personal
data. Privacy by Design is important to the products we build.
If a new kind of processing is probably going to lead to a high risk to the rights and freedoms of
a pure individual, you need to assess the effect of the envisaged processing operations on the
protection of personal data. In France, for example, the processing of personal data of a
youngster shall be lawful where the kid is at least 15 year-old. You also ought to have process in
place to make sure you’re able to permanently delete the data if requested.
