Register of Processing Activities (Corporate DPIA)

Legislations and regulations such as the GDPR and the EUIDPR require organisations to maintain records of your processing activities (GDPR Article 30 - EUIDPR Article 31). Beyond the mandatory nature of the records of processing activities, the rationale is that the understanding of the data flows allows the justification of data processing.

A number of EU Data Protection Authorities have released templates for small businesses, but filling templates can be misleading. There is a risk that a "template filling exercise" doesn't lead to a proper analysis of the data flows, justification of data processing and mitigation.

For Financial Entities, under the Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA), the only way organisations can assess and mitigate risks is by understanding what data is processed, who are the stakeholders and document the context.

Bizoneo allow organisations to easily gather and document their processing activity, and generate reports to assist Management and the Data Protection Officer. We also provide specific features to assist data-processors.
