What is data privacy compliance?

Data privacy compliance is a data security practice that handles all data – especially personally identifiable information, or PII –  in adherence to data privacy regulations, laws and processes. Common data privacy compliance challenges revolve around how data is collected, managed, stored and shared under prevailing regulations such as the GDPR, CCPA and HIPAA.

Failure to comply with data privacy regulations can lead to legal actions, hefty fines, the loss of customer trust and the damage of your business’s reputation.

Are data privacy regulations different?

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is something of a standard-bearer of data privacy laws. Since its 2018 introduction, similar measures have been introduced worldwide – including the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and the Brazilian Data Protection Law (LGPD).

With various regulations already in place, your organization may need to address multiple regulatory requirements depending on the location of your business and your customers. But, many existing data privacy laws embrace a number of common principles.

Common data privacy requirements

The fact that there is a level of commonality of purpose and intent within the regulations means that you can consider developing a cohesive approach. But, remember: before making any decision or taking any action that may affect your business, you should consult a qualified professional advisor.

Some of the common requirements include:

  • Being transparent about personal data use, and in some cases, requiring data subject consent.
  • Maintaining data security and restricting access to PII.
  • Giving data subjects the right to know what data is held about them, enabling them to have this data amended or deleted in certain circumstances.
  • Ensuring that compliance is maintained.
  • Responding promptly n the event of an audit by the regulators.
