With the rapid growth in data storage solutions, many organisations no longer see data retention as a high-cost item. The temptation to retain all things data is so strong and with greater access to technology due to reduced costs, perpetual retention of both manual and electronic data may be perceived as convenient and not necessarily expedient as it involves “a lot work”. But with this comes increased exposure to the risk of data loss, unauthorised access, and ultimately, reputational damage. Retaining data indefinitely without a legal basis or justification can constitute an infringement under GDPR can attract fines.

This is particularly relevant where data processing can pose a high risk to the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals. A risk based approach is defined as a process that facilitates the identification of privacy related risks and subsequently allows for development of strategies to mitigate the impact of such risks.

Before the first line of code is written, as a data controller you should ask the following question should be asked;

  • what does the use of personal data mean for the customer?
  • what risks will the use of personal data pose to the fundamental rights of individuals?
  • are the necessary technological measures in place to safeguard processing of personal data?

With the rapid growth in data storage solutions, many organisations no longer see data retention as a high-cost item. The temptation to retain all things data is so strong and with greater access to technology due to reduced costs, perpetual retention of both manual and electronic data may be perceived as convenient and not necessarily expedient as it involves “a lot work”. But with this comes increased exposure to the risk of data loss, unauthorised access, and ultimately, reputational damage. Retaining data indefinitely without a legal basis or justification can constitute an infringement under GDPR can attract fines.

GDPR comes packaged with requirements that encourage accountability and governance for the protection of personal data for organizations involved in the processing of such.  Accountability is now an important and explicit requirement under GDPR. Simply put, accountability requires that organisations process personal data lawfully and accurately in a transparent manner. There must be one or more legitimate reasons why personal data is effectively processed and where appropriate, minimally retained.
