Accountability in GDPR Compliance


Accountability is the final principle in GDPR compliance, requiring organisations to demonstrate adherence to General Data Protection Regulations.


Organisations must fulfil several responsibilities to ensure accountability:

  • Record-keeping: Maintain records of processing activities, clearly outlined in the privacy policy.
  • Compliance: Understand and comply with all processing principles outlined in GDPR.
  • Contracts: Establish contracts with data processors and implement adequate security measures.
  • Rights Management: Have policies in place to handle and document individuals' requests to exercise GDPR rights.
  • Consent Management: Maintain records of consent details, including how, when, and to what individuals consented.
  • Data Breach Response: Develop a policy to address, investigate, record, and report data breaches when necessary.

Special Requirements

Certain organisations have additional obligations:

  • Data Protection Officer (DPO): Appoint a DPO for public authorities or organisations conducting large-scale monitoring or processing of sensitive data.
  • Registration: Register with the Information Commissioner's Office and pay the annual fee.

Employee Training and System Maintenance

Additional measures for ensuring compliance:

  • Password Management: Regularly review password systems for security.
  • Training: Provide comprehensive training to employees on password management and system security.
  • System Monitoring: Monitor systems regularly to detect and address security vulnerabilities.
  • Policy Review: Review all policies periodically to ensure continuous compliance with GDPR.
