Entities Registers


Why you need Entities Registers

In Privacy-land, it’s hard to exaggerate the importance of knowing who you share personal data with, for so many reasons.

For example:

  • Article 28 of GDPR requires you as a Controller to only use Processors that can guarantee compliance. Meaning you need to know who they are so you can manage your due diligence and also make sure you’ve a written agreement with each on covering the items listed in Art 28.
  • And when you’re a Processor, that same Art 28 requires you to have similar contracts in place with your Sub-Processors and (famously) to get authorisation from your Controllers to use and change any Sub-Processor. Customers ask for this stuff.
  • Art 26 of GDPR sets out your obligations on Joint Controllers – which must be reflected in a written arrangement between you and them.
  • We won’t go on. OK, just a bit …
    • RoPAs under Art 30 need categories of some recipients and names of others.
    • Notices under Arts 14 & 15 need the same.
    • DPIAs under Art 35 need to include a systematic description of the processing, including the parties involved.
    • And when you respond to many of the Data Subject Rights under Chapter III, including the most common, the DSAR (the access right), you certainly need to know your Privacy Supply Chain!


Multiple Roles

One of the interesting things about Privacy for us geeks (and one of the annoying things if you’re not one) is that the same entity can have various roles in your Data Map.

Let’s say you use Microsoft to store all your data (or Google or whomever).

If you’re storing personal data there for your Sales and Marketing activities you’re almost certainly the Controller of that data and Microsoft (Google, whomever) is your Processor.

Now let’s say your services mean you process some personal data for your customers along the way and you also store all that data in the same place. For those activities, you’re almost certainly a Processor for your customer and Microsoft (Google, whomever) is your Sub-Processor.

Same same but very different.

With our Entities Registers you can filter by role and you can zoom in to individual entities to see how and where you’re working with them.
