The GDPR technical and organisational measures require a business to process personal data in a secure manner. The Regulation requires this to be done by means of ‘appropriate technical and organisational measures’. The ICO have a very useful guidance page on the technical and organisational measures.
Whilst the data protection framework does not specify a definitive list of those measures, they are deemed to controls over and above the standard GDPR policies. Areas such as information security and risk management are key when ensuring the security of personal data.
From policies and procedures, through to systems and processes; the GDPR technical and organisational measures require a firm to assess the risks posed to personal data and to ensure adequate and effective controls and measure are in place to mitigate these.
