The protection of personal data in the Czech Republic was previously enshrined in Act No. 101/2000 Coll. At the same time, Directive 95/46 / EC applied to the Member States of the European Union. However, in May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force, replacing the original legislation. BS 10012 certification confirms that the organization meets the requirements set by the GDPR.
Is it really important to get the BS 10012 certification?
Modern technologies make it possible to collect and evaluate huge amounts of data, which increases the risk of invading the privacy of those who provide information about themselves. We should therefore be interested in the protection of personal data. In addition, it has been established by an EU regulation, which we know as GDPR, and the BS 10012 standard significantly helps to comply with its requirements.
Our organisation works with personal data, what does that mean?
The law imposes a number of obligations on controllers and processors of personal data, the proper fulfilment of which in practice is not entirely simple.
The controller or processor must "put in place appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect personal data against accidental or unauthorized access, destruction, loss, unauthorized modifications, unauthorized disclosure and any other form of unlawful processing". These measures must be based on the environment in which the personal data are processed, be proportionate to the risk, be processed, be documented and reflect the technologies used.
What are the most common problems in organisations that do not have the BS 10012 certification?
In consulting and auditing we often encounter helplessness among responsible staff who do not know how to apply personal data protection requirements. Some organizations believe that it is enough to issue an internal regulation containing quotations from the law, thus avoiding legal liability. But how to implement its requirements factually, organizationally and technically? The BS 10012 certification will answer this question, incl. process settings.
