“Comply with privacy accountability?”

What is a Declaration of Accountability?

The investigation leads to a justification as referred to in Articles 5, second paragraph and 24 GDPR: the “accountability”.

What are the benefits?

The declaration of accountability complies with legal frameworks that are relevant to the organisation, offers the management of the organisation to comply with the duty of accountability at the pace ‘what is possible’ and offers the possibility to fulfill the internal control task as much as possible by its own employees.
