Applicable security measures in GDPR


The entire General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) revolves around the protection of personal data, how personal data can be used and so forth. Here, we go over what the applicable security measures are in the GDPR.

Examples of security measures that an organisation can take in order to protect privacy-related information include:

  • Restricted access for recipients/employees
  • Separation in a secured document management system (such as Knowliah)
  • Log-&-audit with regard to processing/purpose
  • Pseudonymization
  • Anonymization
  • Summarization & aggregation
  • Automated erasure per time limit per type of information [….]
  • Application of system security:
    • Ability to ensure the ongoing confidentiality
    • Ability to restore
    • A process for regular testing
