Accountability - the key principle to evidence your GDPR compliance.
At national level, in 2019, most Data Protection Authorities report an increase in GDPR queries and complaints compared to 2017.
67% of Europeans have heard of the GDPR. 57% know that there is a public authority in their country responsible for protecting their rights about personal data.
Over 144.000 queries and complaints from data subjects and over 89.000 data breaches have been logged at EU level.
Under the GDPR, accountability requires that organisations put in place appropriate technical and organisational measures and be able to demonstrate what they did and its effectiveness when requested.
