The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) gives individuals new powers over their data, with enhanced rights to access, rectify, and erase it, and the ability to freely request the transfer of their information to other platforms. One of the biggest changes for organizations is the accountability principle (Article 5(2)). It requires companies to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect personal data and maintain relevant documentation of all processing activities.
You cannot achieve full compliance with GDPR solely through technical means. The regulation’s scope is broad, encompassing organizational, procedural, and technical security requirements.
