Did you know about this 8 must-have GDPR documents for your company?

GDPR compliance involves setting up many processes and documenting them in policies and practices. We have the capabilities to work with you on creating and enforcing all these and more.

Here is an extensive list of documents you need, to be GDPR compliant:

1. Personal Data Protection Policy

This essential document outlines how you collect, process, store, access, and protect personally identifiable data (PII). Your organization must prove it handles these activities fairly, transparently, and according to the law.

2. Privacy Notice and Privacy Policy

Your Privacy Policy now has to be updated with richer, clearer details about the tools and methods your organization uses to handle personal data.

3. Cookie Policy

In this document, your organization must transparently show how and why it tracks the behavior of your website users. You can also try our free Cookies Scanner to help you build your cookie notice.

4. Employee Privacy Notice

According to the GDPR, your company also has to explain how it might process personal data pertaining to your employees. This includes details such as health records, criminal records and more.

5. Data Retention Policy

Part of your GDPR compliance is to provide a detailed description of how you store data before deleting it. Along with your data retention schedule, this document must also include information about safe data disposal.

6. Data Subject Consent Form

Obtaining consent is how the GDPR ensures your organization clearly explains to its customers, partners, and employees which data is collected about them and how it’s managed and safeguarded.

7. Supplier Data Processing Agreement

Because third-party vendors are often the cause of cyberattacks, you must also establish a process for enforcing data protection between your business flows.

8. Data Breach Response and Notification Procedure

In case of a data breach, your company must be prepared to not only respond, but also notify the concerned authorities. Subsequently, you must also alert the affected customers, partners, and other impacted stakeholders.

Other GDPR documents you may need include:

  • Data Breach Register
  • Data Breach Notification Form to the Supervisory Authority
  • Data Breach Notification Form to Data Subjects
  • Data Protection Officer Job Description
  • DPIA (Data Protection Impact Assessment) Register
  • Inventory of Processing Activities
  • Parental Consent Form
  • Standard Contractual Clauses for the Transfer of Personal Data to Controllers
  • Standard Contractual Clauses for the Transfer of Personal Data to Processors
