I’ve seen a few suppliers make classic errors dealing with breaches in their client’s data. Here are the top three errors suppliers make and 5 suggestions to avoid them!
Move to Remote Examinations
Category: Change Management / Governance / Transparency / Data Transfer Management
Customer: The Honorable Society of King’s Inns
We have worked as DPO with King’s Inns since 2019. When the pandemic hit we had to work quickly to ensure that summer exams could be delivered remotely. We undertook a number of Data Protection Impact Assessments and worked to document remote examination procedures. Transparency and Data Transfer were key areas of focus for these exams as personal data was being processed with new suppliers as part of the remote exams. Managing the data and ensuring students were adequately informed and trained on the systems being used was key to getting this project over the line.

The General Data Protection Regulation is “risk” based legislation. This means that the protective measures an organisation implements should correspond to the level of risk associated with their data processing activities. It’s worth noting that the risk that should be considered here, is the risk to the data subject as opposed to risk to the business of non-compliance.
Data Protection Programmes are all the rage these days. It’s great to see the compliance conversation moving in this direction. As a Data Protection Officer (DPO), I know the difference between working with a solid data protection programme and working with none and all.
