Future-Proofing Privacy: The New Accountability Regime

Part 7 of Future-Proofing Privacy: The New Accountability Regime. Accountability is about demonstrating compliance and being transparent about such compliance. The Data Protection Directive already includes a number of obligations and recommendations for data controllers which echo the accountability principle, but new obligations in the Regulation formalise the requirement. Compliance with the accountability provisions of the Regulation will entail conducting audits, implementing internal and external policies and processes, privacy impact assessments and security measures and appointing a DPO.
