Preparing for GDPR: Data Mapping

One of my responsibilities at Accelerate Places is to ensure that the business (across all of its limited companies) is compliant with the changes to data protection law under GDPR.

I’ve found a useful tool from the Isle of Man Information Commissioner: their Know Your Data, Mapping the 5 W’s (PDF) toolkit.

I’m currently using the toolkit to create an inventory of all the personal data processed. Once that is done, I’ll be able to map the processing of personal data and work through which is the most appropriate legal basis for the processing.
