The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires covered entities to maintain what is known as a “Record of Processing Activities” (ROPA). This record should reflect the business’ complete inventory of its data processing, along with a detailed description of how personal data is being handled. From a practical standpoint, the creation and maintenance of a dynamic ROPA helps businesses remain regulatory compliant, thus avoiding sanctions, fines, or penalties that might otherwise be imposed under the GDPR.
Our Data Protection Officers (“DPO”) have extensive experience building and maintaining ROPAs for businesses of all sizes and industries. Along with our deep experience, we partner with Securiti.ai, providing our clients with the most advanced ROPA technology in the industry. We have the necessary people, processes, and technology to ensure our clients remain compliant with all Article 30 requirements.
Our team disseminates electronic assessments in our secure privacy portal to all necessary stakeholders to assist in the identification of all business assets, vendors, and institutions holding or processing personal data. From there, we can use our automated data scans to develop a precise and current data inventory and further classify all related processing activities. The end result is a dynamic electronic ROPA that is continually updated automatically.
Not sure where to begin, or even if a ROPA is right for you?
We understand that creation and maintenance of a ROPA, even for the smallest enterprise, is a significant undertaking. However, as data privacy laws like GDPR and CCPA/CPRA develop and morph, building a ROPA can aid in overall risk-mitigation – even for organizations not currently inside the GDPR’s regulatory umbrella. ROPA insights are critical for any company that collects or processes personal data.
