Part 2

Lawful processing

Part 3

Retention

Part 4

Part 5

How it all fits together and how to keep it up

The sleep-well-at-night exercise

Well-defined Processing Activities are the key to being lawful under the GDPR. It limits the “what-ifs” and worries of the people for whom you process data, along with your risk of fines and bad press. It also makes it easier to help you and share valuable data with you. Keep your record of processing activities up-to date and make it a part of your toolbox when deciding on new systems and ways of using data.

And remember – we are always here to help!
