The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Data Protection specific requirements:
STEP 1: Get your bearings
- The latest quick edition of the Data Protection Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.
Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…
- Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation
Then find your goals…
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 686 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Data Protection improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 686 standard requirements:
- Privacy should not be an afterthought; a bolt-on sometime between the initial coding and delivery of a new system. It should be designed in from the start; peer-reviewed; tested and the data controller needs to be able to show that adequate security is in place; it is monitored; and that the strictest data protection policies will apply by default. If you design your own custom apps; are these the standards you work to? When deploying purchased systems; is privacy set at its tightest by default?
- You don’t want to be informed of a data loss incident from the users themselves or from the data protection authority. Do you have technology that can detect breaches that have taken place; forensics available to investigate how the data was lost (or changed); and can you go back in time with full user logs and identify the incident to understand its scope and impact?
- Traditional data protection principles include fair and lawful data processing; data collection for specified, explicit, and legitimate purposes; accurate and kept up-to-date data; data retention for no longer than necessary. Are additional principles and requirements necessary for IoT applications?
- Do we measure Accuracy? One data protection risk lies in the detection rates, specifically the false positive and false negatives, i.e. how many people are mistakenly identified as fraudulent or how many fraudulent claims are not identified?
- We keep record of data and store them in cloud services; for example Google Suite. There are data protection tools provided and security rules can be set. But who has the responsibility for securing them; us or Google?
- In the event of an investigation, a business’ internal discussions will be relevant, as well as these external objective factors. Does the business “envisage the offering of services to” individuals in the Union?
- If you have historically considered yourself to be a processor to avoid being directly subject to data protection laws, consider revisiting that conclusion. Might you be better off as a controller?
- Does the project involve any activities (including any data handling) that are subject to privacy or related provisions of any statute or secondary legislation, other than the Data Protection Act?
- Data Protection & Privacy of Personal Information: Are data protection and privacy ensured as required in relevant statutory, regulatory, and if applicable contractual requirements?
- I need to dispose of a computer that may have held personal or confidential data. do I need to do anything to ensure I do not contravene the data protection act?
Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

- Project Scope Statement: If the scope changes, what will the impact be to your Data Protection project in terms of duration, cost, quality, or any other important areas of the Data Protection project?
- Activity Duration Estimates: What is the career outlook for Data Protection project managers in information technology?
- Project or Phase Close-Out: What information is each stakeholder group interested in?

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, ‘What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?’
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that – whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc… – they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Data Protection investments work better.
This Data Protection All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person:
